And now, the Blazers are winning.

In a rollercoaster season, the Portland Trail Blazers won their fourth straight game Sunday, following a series of six straight losses that pushed the team's fanbase to the edge of terror.

Portland beat Boston on the road, 129-119, behind a 33-point performance from C.J. McCollum, 26 points and 13 assists from Damian Lillard and 23 points from Norman Powell.

The win improved the Blazers to 20-12 on the road and moved them into a tie for fifth place in the Western Conference, sharing the spot with Dallas and the Los Angeles Lakers at 36-28.

Portland plays at Atlanta, 35-30, Monday night.
