The C’s beat the Blazers 115-93 nearly two weeks ago. However, Portland wants to stay in the West play-in race despite losing its last four games. Boston pulled off a win over the Timberwolves that saw some controversy, but the Celtics will have those wins if they try to catch the Bucks in first place.
