Los Angeles: Al Horford rattled in a fadeaway jumper as the buzzer sounded to lift the Boston Celtics to a 97-96 win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday.

Horford, Semi Ojeleye and Jayson Tatum scored consecutive three pointers late in the fourth quarter as the Celtics took the lead with an 11-0 run after trailing 85-79.

Horford finished with 22 points and 10 rebounds for Boston, who won their fourth NBA game in a row. Tatum had 17 points and Jaylen Brown scored 16 for the Celtics in front of a crowd of 18,600 at the Boston Garden arena.

Terry Rozier, who is starting in place of injured guard Kyrie Irving, had 11 points on five-of-18 shooting.

Damian Lillard scored the final eight points for the Blazers, including a three-point play with seven seconds left to give them the lead 96-95. Lillard finished with 21 points shooting six-of-19 from the field. C.J. McCollum led the Blazers with 22 points.

Elsewhere, the Milwaukee Bucks breezed past the Brooklyn Nets 109-94 despite missing star Giannis Antetokounmpo who left the game in the final quarter with a right ankle injury.
