Celtics Lose Again, Trail Blazers Hold on for 100-94 Win

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

Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum has been named NBA Western Conference Player of the Week for games played from November 5 to November 11, it was announced today by the league.

The Boston Celtics are now 7-6 after a 100-94 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday.

Damian Lillard had 19 points and 12 assists while Jusuf Nurkic added 18 points and 17 rebounds. The Blazers have won seven of their last eight games.

He continued to say, "We're not as good as we think we are".

Momentum swings might mean the most for Aminu and his gratitude for it dates back to his grade schools days. This team needs time to get better and the coaching staff has to help them find that chemistry. "We play a type of game where it's not like if the tide will turn, it's when the tide will turn", Turner said.

The Blazers wrapped up their homestand 5-1.

It still is early, but the C's have not played like the NBA Finals-bound team many people pegged them as before the season started. There's no excuse. We need to play better.

Sipila's comment came four days after North Atlantic Treaty Organisation forces ended their two-week Trident Juncture exercise. Similar GPS disruption occurred in Norway the previous week, with Oslo similarly accusing Russian Federation as the culprit.

Irving returned to the Celtics after missing Friday's loss at Utah because he was at his grandfather's funeral. With Hayward, he is working in a player who didn't play an entire National Basketball Association season. Theis played for five minutes and had two rebounds. It didn't last long and Meyers Leonard's 3-pointer gave Portland a 40-31 lead midway through the second quarter. We have challenges. We have barriers to get over as a team and individually.

Portland was coming off a 116-105 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday. I said it at the beginning of the season.

"So I think that it's not consistent, whatever our issues are". "I'm going to be the most patient out of everyone".

"I just understand that for us to be special we just have to get through some challenges".

"Going on a tough six-game day road trip you've got to ride the wave, take advantage of this momentum at home and try to replicate that on the road", McCollum said.

Tatum agrees that, just maybe, the Celtics have spent too much time listening to the outside hype. A ladder was brought in to allow arena personnel to adjust it.

The Trail Blazers visit the Lakers on Wednesday.
