Recap

Celtics survive close battle, edge Blazers in overtime

BOSTON (NBA.com exclusive) -- Strange as it was, the Boston Celtics had a rare creature to get off their backs after losing three consecutive games at home and four of five overall.

But, mired in their worst slump of the season, the return of Kevin Garnett and a late three from Ray Allen helped the Celtics shake the bad mojo and beat the persistent Portland Trail Blazers 98-95 in overtime.

When the Blazers forced overtime with a pair of long jumpers, Ray Allen (3-for-14, nine points) had been having one of his worst nights in recent memory. His shot was not only off, but it was left, right and every other direction but in. He missed two technical free throws and at one point he even airmailed a 3 long by at least three feet.

"You know he's going to knock that shot down," Portland coach Nate McMillan said. "Early on he missed that first one and that second one; that usually doesnt happen again."

Boston coach Doc Rivers kept the faith, running two failed plays for Allen in overtime until the charm came with 41.3 seconds remaining when Allen dropped in a wide-open 3 to return the lead to Boston for good.

"He has too much history of makes to ever doubt what he does," Rivers said. "Shooter's shoot and eventually you just have to think... every miss meant the odds were on our side more."

A few broken plays from Portland and a fastbreak dunk from Tony Allen later, and the Blazers' hope of avenging an embarrassing 15-point loss at TD Garden last season were snuffed.

"We didn't come here to be close," LaMarcus Aldridge said. "We have to learn from it."

The pessimist would point out that Boston's struggles in the second half continued -- lowlighted by a number of missed layups -- against a Portland team that was depleted even before losing Brandon Roy the day before and Jerryd Bayless early in the third quarter. But this was not a game of attrition. The Blazers brought the fight behind 30 second-half points from Andre Miller -- the team's lone remaining effective playmaker -- and Martell Webster.

"There's no moral victories, but we let another one slip away," Miller said. "We talked about our execution down the stretch, we had turnovers at the wrong time, and that's the game."

The first half was a perfect example of each team taking advantage of the other's glaring weakness. The Celtics, susceptible to anyone that doesnt allow themselves get boxed out, lost Kendrick Perkins to foul trouble in the first half and allowed nine offensive boards in the half. With a slight nod to advance scouting, Portland's guards and bigs alike played like they knew the loose balls were there for the taking.

Conversely, the Celtics shot back by sending their guards in flight down the fast-break slots as Portland crashed the boards, leading to 17 fast-break points in the half. On top of that, as the Blazers lacking a physical presence with Greg Oden and Joel Przybilla shelved, the Celtics were not shy about using their unlimited supply of cards that read, "Advance directly to the rim." The final tally on points in the paint was 56-32 in favor of Boston.

The return of the Celtics' main presence, Garnett (13 points, four rebounds), did not go as smoothly as possible in his 30 minutes. Looking like he did earlier in the season coming back from knee surgery, Garnett's timing was off when rebounding, his speed wasn't quite there on defense and the explosiveness was lacking.

"He looked tentative as far as offense," Rivers said. "I tried to stay away from him as far as post and even the jump shot because when you miss the games that he's missed, you know your touch is going to be off a little bit."

"The old '76 pinto got banged up a little bit," Garnett said.
