Often when the Boston Celtics lose it's because of rebounding and the lack of team size. But Saturday's loss to Portland was because of guards, Damian Lillard and C.J. McCCollum were simply to good in a 127-123 overtime victory over the C's.

Lillard scored 28 points, many of them late in the game. McCollum pumped in 35.

Isaiah Thomas led the Celtics with 41 points but admitted afterall the C's couldn't get stops on Portland when needed.

The C's record is now 26-17.
