Celtics lose to Blazers, 100-94

Kyrie Irving: Boston Celtics Could Use a '15-Year Vet'

Fourth straight victory "trail Blazers".

Jusef Nurkic was a force down low, putting up 18 points while hauling in 17 rebounds.

"We're not as good as we think we are". The Celtics are shooting the third most three-pointers per game (37.6), but the C's only have been able to knock down 35.6 percent, which is good for 14th in the National Basketball Association. He made another key 3 at put Portland up 100-94 with a minute left. His 19 points and 12 rebounds.

"Yeah, I mean, I'd like to see us like find some consistency at some point", the coach said.

The Blazers wrapped up their homestand 5-1. We were a little bit better (defensively against Portland) and. gave ourselves a chance to win the game. Different people have it going at different times.

Irving returned to the Celtics after missing Friday's loss at Utah because he was at his grandfather's funeral.

One player on the other side, quite familiar with Stevens and the way he wants his team to play, believes the Celtics roster is a long-term chemistry experiment.

Kyrie told reporters after the game, "When it comes to getting punched in the mouth a few times we come out and-clearly we outmatch teams at dang near every position".

"I liked the way we've done it", Lillard said about Portland's early season success. "I think it's been by committee, everybody's been pretty consistent and we've been sharp". "I'm going to be the most patient out of everyone". But due to their inconsistency, the fact that they're on a long road trip and facing a very strong team, I'm taking the Trail Blazers, who are great at home.

Celtics: Tatum led the Celtics at the break with 13 points. A ladder was brought in to allow arena personnel to adjust it.

The loss capped a disappointing road trip for the Celtics.
