The Boston Celtics fell behind by 17 points in the first half only to come back and beat the Trailblazers in Portland 120-111 late last night.

This was an impressive win for the C's. It was the second night of a back-to-back game on the road. The Celts did not have Avery Bradley who is still injured and they did not have Jae Crowder who missed the game with a family issue.

But Isaiah Thomas was there and he scored 34 points, 15 of them in the fourth quarter.

And, Marcus Smart might have been the biggest key to the win. 18 points, six rebounds, five assists and six steals.

Damien Lillard led Portland with 28.

The Celtics are 34-19 and head to Utah for a Saturday night game. You can hear the game on Sports Radio 92.9 The Ticket beginning at 9:30pm.
