Gameday Open Thread: Celtics 88, Blazers 78 (Postgame)

Well, there isn't much to say after a game like that. Portland kept it close for a while, but wasn't able to generate enough offense to challenge Boston in the fourth quarter. The Blazers finished the game shooting 37% from the field and 25% from three.

LaMarcus Aldridge led the way with 17 points and 16 rebounds, but had a tough night from the field, finishing 8-20. Here's your box score.

Nicolas Batum left the game near the end of the first half with a "sore left knee." UPDATE: Ben reports that Batum will undergo an MRI.

Discuss the game here, and remember to stick around for Dave's recap and Ben's media row report.
