Celtics Notes: Blazers’ Bench Shines; Kelly Olynyk Lays Goose Egg

The Boston Celtics showed a lot of encouraging signs Sunday night, especially on the defensive end, but it was not enough to earn them a victory over a very talented Portland Trail Blazers team.
Join us as we recap some tidbits from Portland’s 94-88 win.
– Kelly Olynyk arguably is the best shooter on the Celtics’ roster, but he finished with exactly zero point in the loss and attempted just three shots. Olynyk also went scoreless last Monday against the Phoenix Suns, but he played just 13 minutes in that contest.
“They didn’t allow him a lot of opportunities on the outside,” head coach Brad Stevens said after the game. “They decided to guard him.

As to be expected, LaMarcus Aldridge led the way for the Trail Blazers with 20 points and 14 rebounds, while Chris Kaman had 16 off the bench and Steve Blake chipped in 11. The Trail Blazers have now won 7 in a row.
Jeff Green and Jared Sullinger led the way for the Celtics in the scoring column, each finishing with 19 points while Rajon Rondo totaled 13 points 8 assists and 6 rebounds.
The first half saw a significantly better effort on defense than we have seen from this Celtics team all season. They held the Blazers to 35% shooting from the floor including a 2/8 mark from Damian Lillard and a 4/13 from LaMarcus Aldridge. The Cs would have went into the half with a bigger lead had they been able to shoot better than 40% from the field.
The Celtics put together another solid defensive effort in the 2nd half, creating 10 turnovers. However, they shot a woe…
