Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown led the Celtics to the victory over the Portland Trail Blazers in a late thriller (128-124).

The two players combined for 64 points, with Tatum posting a game-high 34 points (11/22 shooting) and Brown adding 30 (10/18 shooting).

The Celtics led by as many as 24 points (58-34), yet the Blazers turned things around and took the lead (98-101). Boston survived, though, and earned its first win in the Orlando “bubble”.
