"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.

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.
