Who’s Playing

Boston @ Portland

Current Records: Boston 12-11; Portland 11-12

What to Know

The Boston Celtics might have tired legs after a matchup yesterday as they head on the road against the Portland Trail Blazers at 10 p.m. ET Dec. 4 at Moda Center at the Rose Quarter. The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close contest.

The Celtics came up short against the Utah Jazz this past Friday, falling 137-130. Despite the loss, Boston got a solid performance out of small forward Jayson Tatum, who had 37 points and five assists in addition to six rebounds.

Meanwhile, the night started off rough for Portland this past Thursday, and it ended that way, too. They were completely outmatched by the San Antonio Spurs at home and fell 114-83. The Trail Blazers were in a tough position by the half, with the score already sitting at 68-47. Shooting guard CJ McCollum (16 points) and small forward Norman Powell (16 points) were the top scorers for Portland.

Both teams will surely be fighting tooth and nail to get back into the win column after losses last week. We’ll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
