Surging Celtics ride wave of momentum into Portland

The Boston Celtics are showing glimpses of life and hope to ride the momentum of a stirring comeback when they visit the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday night.

Boston has won three straight and five of its past six games after recovering from a 14-point deficit with 14-plus minutes to play to notch a 105-87 victory over the Denver Nuggets on Sunday. The Celtics finished the game with a dominating 40-8 run.

The stunning turnaround in the opener of a three-game road excursion also marked the third straight game in which Boston delivered a comeback victory.
