Portland @ Boston

Current Records: Portland 18-26; Boston 23-23

What to Know

The Portland Trail Blazers’ road trip will continue as they head to TD Garden at 7:30 p.m. ET Friday to face off against the Boston Celtics. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W.’

On Wednesday, Portland lost to the Miami Heat on the road by a decisive 104-92 margin. Despite the defeat, the Trail Blazers had strong showings from shooting guard Anfernee Simons, who shot 6-for-14 from downtown and finished with 27 points and seven assists, and center Jusuf Nurkic, who dropped a double-double on 18 points and 14 boards. That makes it three consecutive games in which Nurkic has had at least 14 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Boston came up short against the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday, falling 111-102. One thing holding Boston back was the mediocre play of small forward Jayson Tatum, who did not have his best game: he played for 35 minutes with 5-for-19 shooting.

Portland is expected to lose this next one by 7.5. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn’t have high expectations for them since the team is 5-11 ATS when expected to lose.
