- Evan Turner's game-winning 3 puts bitter end to bad day for Blazers (Ball Don't Lie) January 23, 2015After losing LaMarcus Aldridge to left thumb surgery before the game and Nicolas Batum to a sprained right wrist during the game, the Portland Trail Blazers really could have used a win over the lottery-bound Boston Celtics to at least salvage something positive from what had been a pretty crummy Thursday. Man, this really wasn't the Blazers' day. [ Follow Dunks Don't Lie on Tumblr: The best slams from all of basketball ] Holding onto a two-point lead after pressed-into-starting power forward Thomas Robinson split a pair of free throws on the prior possession, the Blazers needed one last stop to escape. And for a second there, it looked like they had it. Portland guard Wesley Matthews darted from the corner to swipe at Boston big man Jared Sullinger's dribble, knocking the ball loose in the paint and sending Sullinger diving to the floor to retrieve it. In the ensuing scramble, the former Ohio State standout wound up seated and facing the corner from which Matthews had come ... and where Sullinger's fellow former Buckeye, Evan Turner, was standing unmarked. Turner knew it was going down. "Not to be arrogant, I did actually," he said. "I prayed prior to it to make a big shot. And it happened." — Jay King (@ByJayKing) January 23, 2015 Spoken with the confidence of a man who rocks an "E.T." piece . Sullinger kicked out the pass, Turner hoisted the 3 just over the outstretched arms of the hard-charging Matthews' flying closeout, and the ball splashed through the net. It might not have been exactly the play that second-year Celtics coach Brad Stevens drew up in the huddle, but it still gave Boston a one-point lead with 1.9 seconds left on the clock. With Aldridge and Batum out of commission, everyone in the world knew where Portland would look for an answer on its last possession, and that included the Celtics; Damian Lillard couldn't even get a shot off before the final buzzer sounded, sealing a 90-89 Celtics win . Turner finished with 10 points on 4-for-9 shooting, eight assists, six rebounds, one steal and four turnovers in 31 minutes in the win, Boston's first on the road against a Western Conference opponent in nearly two years . Sullinger added 17 points on 8-for-15 shooting, nine boards (four on the offensive glass), one steal and that one big assist in his 28 minutes of work. Avery Bradley led the way with 18 points on 8-for-16 shooting to go with four rebounds and four assists as Boston won for just the second time in its last seven games. As for the Blazers ...
