PORTLAND, Ore. - LaMarcus Aldridge had 21 points and 13 rebounds Saturday night as the Portland Trail Blazers handed the Boston Celtics their eighth straight loss, 112-104.
Another good performance, another close loss.
This is becoming the silver lining of choice for the Boston Celtics who once again did a lot of good things, but not enough to win.
Jared Sullinger is coming off his best game as a reserve, scoring 21 points and grabbing 11 rebounds in Boston's 99-97 loss at Golden State on Friday.
The Portland Trail Blazers are scoring 109.1 points a game this season, more than a dozen points more than they averaged last season.
Better ball movement.
