Portland came in a little bit tired, they had played the night before in Phoenix, and they were without their star forward LaMarcus Aldridge, who will be out 6-8 weeks with an injured thumb. Still, a whole lot of big shots from Damian Lillard and Wes Matthews made this look like Portland was going to have too much firepower and get a win at home.
But Boston went on a late 10-3 run, got within one and had time for one last shot. Jared Sullinger tried to pound the ball into the paint but Matthews comes by and knocks it away — Sullinger dives to the floor to get it, comes up and from a seated position fires a pass out to Evan Turner.
Who nails the three.
Boston would win the game, snapping a 24-game road losing streak against the West.
