Portland is fighting for a playoff spot as it currently holds a ninth-place spot (30-37 record) in the Western Conference. CJ McCollum (33 points) and Damian Lillard (29) led the way in the for the Trail Blazers in the first game of their season restart vs. the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday, propelling them to a 140-135 overtime win.
When the C's and Trail Blazers last faced off in February, Boston earned the 118-106 victory thanks to a sensational 36-point performance from Jayson Tatum. Portland and Boston both were missing their star point guards for the matchup as Lillard (groin) and Kemba Walker (knee) were held out.
