BY THE NUMBERS
While there have been multiple factors that have triggered the Celtics' three-losses-in-four-games slump, most have been forged by at least one player on the opposing team doing more than just score a bunch of points. The Blazers' two-headed scoring monsterof All-Star guard Damian Lillard and his high-scoring backcourt mate, C.J. McCollum, won't ease that issue tonight.
Remember how good the Celtics used to be on the road? Yeah, we don't either.
RISING IN THE EAST
The Eastern Conference was supposed to be the Celtics' playground this season, but -- what with the fast starts of the Raptors and Pacers and Bucks -- that hasn't been the case so far. And now Jimmy Butler's heading to Philadelphia, giving the 76ers some much-needed toughness . . . and making the C's road a little tougher, as well.
