Those of Boston had to work until the end to overcome some Trail Blazers fighters. Tatum was a figure with 34 points.
In the continuation of the resumption of the regular season of the NBA in the Orlando bubble, Boston Celtics added an outstanding victory after beating 128-124 to Portland Trail Blazers.
Those in green had had to digest a tough loss against the Milwaukee Bucks last Friday, but they recovered in the best way on one of the courts of the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex.
Those led by Brad Stevens jumped in with renewed energy and were able to make a double-digit difference early against Portland. But basketball is a game of streaks, and the Blazers had theirs in the second half, led by one of the best point guards in the league, Damian Lillard, who would end the day with 30 points and 16 assists.
However, this time Lillard was overtaken by the great collective game of the Celtics, who also had stellar appearances by two talented youngsters like Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown, authors of 34 and 30 points, respectively.
Tatum was untouchable throughout the match, while Brown made the two most important triples for his team that would end up sentencing the clash, despite an onslaught by the Blazers in the end.
In this way, the Celtics signed their first victory in the Orlando bubble and follow third in the Eastern Conference, with a record of 44-22. Meanwhile, Portland lost for the first time after the restart and is 30-38, while fighting for a place in the Western Playoffs.
