Blazers guard Damian Lillard did it again on Thursday, throwing down his third big dunk of January in a 90-89 home loss to the Celtics.
With just seconds remaining in the third quarter and Portland leading 70-67, Lillard used a spin move at the top of the key to beat Avery Bradley into the paint. Once there, he took two long strides before lift off, throwing down a right-handed dunk before Zeller was able to come over to help from the right block.
Lillard led the Blazers, who were without LaMarcus Aldridge due to a thumb injury, by posting a game-high 21 points, seven assists and six rebounds. Wesley Matthews added 18 points and three rebounds.
Bradley led Boston with a team-high 18 points, four rebounds and four assists. Turner finished with 10 points, eight assists and six rebounds.
Boston improved to 14-26. Portland dropped to 31-13.
