Celtics finally get to Kaman and triple stuff him.
Celtics have done well limiting Lillard and Aldridge tonight but there's only so much you can do against Kaman and Steve Blake.
Kelly Olynyk, still scoreless. Just three shots for the Celtics best shooter over 25 minutes.
There is something great about Gerald Wallace and Chris Kaman competing in a close game. Nearly 43,000 regular season minutes between them.
Zeller is doing a nice job reading Chris Kaman’s footwork. But he isn’t getting any lift to defend the jump hook.
Wes Matthews finally gets in the game, drilling a dagger in Crash’s face.
Officials review Blake's 3-pointer, call it a 2. tied at 72 after 3Q
It's a tight one at the Garden, as the Blazers lead the Celtics 73-72 after three. Green leads the C's w/ 14, while Rondo/Sully each have 13
Steve Blake just made Evan Turner look rather silly.
Steve Blake just went temporary Iverson. Very temporary.
Gerald Wallace remains one of the toughest dudes in the gym.
James Young scores 22 points on 7-for-16 shooting, 3-for-9 3pt and 8 rebs in 34 min in NBADL Maine's 120-102 win over Delaware
Will this continue the rest of the game? Aldridge + Lillard = 8/24 FG
The Celtics are flying around on defense (POR shooting only 35%) and lead 49-44 at halftime. Green: 12 pts, 3 rebs. http://t.co/U3pFokq0AQ
Christian Laettner would have made that at the buzzer, Sully.
Sully almost pulled off a reverse Laettner!
Jeff Green squares up Aldridge and blows by him with the left hand.
Can we pause for a second for a 2-on-2 game between Rondo/Bradley and Lillard/Matthews?
Good hustle by Bradley to just hone in a loose ball and get on the board with his first points. LA responds by going to work on Sully.
Dame gets his first basket as Rajon Rondo wouldn’t dare commit a foul.
Evan Turner finally makes a useful pass on the break!
Vin Baker is 43 today.
Lillard still cannot shake Bradley, or hit a shot. 0/6 now.
Brad Stevens to Tyler Zeller (two points, four rebonds) during the timeout: "That's some good, physical stuff TZ!"
Stevens had said he needed to use players who could help defend better. Right now Gerald Wallace is looking like a very smart choice.
The Celtics defense has been really good?
Stevens walking Rondo up to check in. Some scheme adjustments should be coming.
Celtics quizzed on westernmost state in US during JumboTron break. Gerald Wallace guessed Wyoming.
Gerald Wallace, on the Jumbotron, reveals that he thinks Wyoming might be the western-most state.
Always good to talk to Chris Kaman when he comes to town. Learn something new after every conversation with him.
Evan Turner’s energy is taking over this game. Not sure I’ve written that since he was in Philly.
Great rotations and recovery by the Celtics D on that possession that ended with a Kaman jumper.
Gerald Wallace time.
Brad Stevens puts in Gerald Wallace for the first time in a few games, and the veteran nicely rewards him with a steal.
Gerald Wallace gets in the second unit and immediately starts running point. This will be fun.
GERALD WALLACE HAS BEEN UNCAGED AND HIS HAIR STILL LOOKS BEAUTIFUL
7 rebounds for Kelly Olynyk going against Robin Lopez. Damian Lillard has been held scoreless so far.
The Celtics are on top of the Trail Blazers 23-21 after the first. Rondo already has 8 pts, 2 rebs, 2 asts. Sully: 7 pts, 3 rebs, 2 asts.
Green, Olynyk and Bradley off to a combined 2-13 start. Green has both makes.
Aldridge finally gets a field goal, but only on a tip in of his own miss on a wide open jump hook.
LaMarcus Aldridge is now 0/6 from the field.
It shows how Bradley is more concerned with his mechanics than what shot he is supposed to take. That’s a positive as far as I’m concerned.
…Bradley has developed a hop in his shot to improve his balance and decided to hop into the shot for a two rather than step back for 3.
There was a missed transition shot earlier by Avery Bradley that was pretty notable in that he could’ve taken a three, but took short two...
Aldridge has missed some shots he could make, but Celtics (gasp) making it tough on an All-Star inside. POR 1-for-11 right now. 11-5, Boston
Olynyk got what looked like a soft foul call, but his rotation onto Lopez was pretty impressive.
Jared Sullinger is doing a hell of a job attempting to contain Aldridge in the post. So far so good.
For Celtics tweeps who don't get to see the Trail Blazers on TV that often, there's a lot of talent to watch tonight on this roster.
What an outlet pass from Sully to Jeff Green there. Nothing prettier than a full-court pass.
Tommy Kelley w a sack and blk fg on consecutive plays for arz.why can't pats get players like hi.....um wait never mind that. My bad
Stevens on Young: "I really thought he was on his way – and maybe even ahead of where we thought he’d be – before he got hurt in preseason."
(2) Part of his answer: "Dwight is a guy that we could see using in spots tonight, especially defensively."
