It’s been an epic battle for the former Orlando Magic shooting guard, but veteran wing Evan Fournier overcame concussion-like symptoms lingering from a bout with COVID-19 to help the Boston Celtics push the Portland Trail Blazers to the final moments in a home loss Sunday night.
The Celtics fell 129-119 despite Fournier’s 21 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals. The St. Maurice native shot 8-of-10 from the field and 5-of-7 from deep in 34 minutes of game time with just 1 turnover and 3 personal fouls on the night.
It was easily his best game since returning from a long bout in the NBA’s health and safety protocols on April 23.
