PORTLAND, Ore. -- For a second consecutive game, the Portland Trail Blazers wiped out a poor first-half performance with a big rally after the break. For the time being, Blazers coach Terry Stotts is all right with that formula. LaMarcus Aldridge had 21 points and 13 rebounds Saturday night as the Portland Trail Blazers handed the Boston Celtics their eighth straight loss, 112-104. "I like being a second half team. Given the choice Id rather be a second half team," Stotts said. "But were still a work in progress. Theres room for improvement (and) we arent a finished product. Weve got to continue to grow incrementally." Earlier this week, Portland trailed Orlando by six points at halftime then outscored the Magic 65-43 to pull away for the win. Boston was Portlands fifth consecutive opponent with a losing record. The Blazers are only 3-2 during this stretch, and in all but one game they struggled during the first half. "Playing teams with a lesser record is apparently tough for us to get up for, but in the end its good to get a win," Stotts said. Wesley Matthews scored 18 points and Nicolas Batum had 16 for Portland. Damian Lillard and Robin Lopez each had 15 points. Lopez also had 13 rebounds. "Its been a trend like this for the last month. Were getting every teams best shot, so we have to act accordingly," Matthews said. "We have the record of an elite team and we have to act that way." The win kept Portland tied for first place with Oklahoma City in the Northwest Division. The Celtics have lost their past three games to the Los Angeles Clippers, Golden State and Portland, all by single digits. "Youve got a shot to win against three contenders for the west but, at the same time, those droughts are killing us," Boston coach Brad Stevens said. "I think we can get better in those. But Im trying to figure what it is because were really playing at such a high level the whole rest of the time. Thats the encouraging part." Avery Bradley led Boston (13-25) with 25 points. The Celtics, who have lost 11 of 12, shot 62 per cent during the first half, but only 34 per cent after halftime. Jared Sullinger had 14 points and 10 rebounds for Boston. Sullinger scored 26 points when the two teams played at Boston in November. Portland took control during the third quarter, when the Blazers took their first lead of the game. The 32-point quarter included a run of 13 consecutive points that staked Portland to a 77-68 lead. The Trail Blazers led by as many as 13 points midway through the fourth quarter, then held off a late Celtics run to win their second consecutive game. Despite playing its fourth game in five days, Boston started strongly, hitting 14 of 20 shots during the first quarter to take a 32-27 lead. Bradley hit 6 of 7 shots and scored 13 points during the opening period. Portland kept close with Boston by hitting six 3-pointers during the first 14 minutes. The Celtics built their lead to double digits at 51-41, then Aldridge made two baskets during the Blazers run of eight consecutive points, paring the deficit to two points. Boston led 60-58 at halftime.

The Northampton back-row forward has been named in Jones starting line-up for Saturdays opening autumn international against South Africa at Twickenham, live on Sky Sports. England vs South Africa November 12, 2016, 2:00pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass It is the first time Wood has been selected since Jones took over the national job and comes nine months after he was labelled distinctly average by the head coach. Any damage done by the comments seems to have been repaired, with Jones happy to compare Wood to Rambo due to his long hair and beard and restore him to his team for what is a key fixture.I think an awful lot was made of that and I just gave an easy headline, Wood told Sky Sports News HQ. Eddie just said that I hadnt been good enough and that I needed to improve if I wanted to get back in.I knew myself that I needed to do that as well and I got my head down and worked hard. We were in contact throughout. Wood has been in fine form for Northampton in the Aviva Premiership Eddie told me the door was never closed on me and that I was getting closer as I was improving and working hard and so I just kept doing what I was doing.ddddddddddddWoods international exile has lasted more than a year and he accepts his chance to restore his reputation with England has come through injuries elsewhere.Jones will be missing James Haskell, Jack Clifford, Sam Jones, Mike Williams and Maro Itoje and Wood is happy to be the beneficiary. Wood was labelled average by Eddie Jones Ive just been quietly working away so that I was ready, he said. The back row is an attritional area of the pitch and there is always a chance there will be injuries.So I knew if I kept working hard and making improvements that Id get a chance but I know this is a real opportunity for me to make my mark.
