The Boston Celtics continued their downward slide in the Eastern Conference on Tuesday night, suffering a 118-95 blowout loss at the hands of the Toronto Raptors at Scotiabank Arena. The fifth-seeded C’s are now two games behind the Philadelphia 76ers for No. 4, and 9.5 games behind the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks.

Overall, the Celtics shot just 38.4 percent as a team. The most anyone could muster was Marcus Morris’ 17 points. Kyrie Irving finished with just seven points on 3-for-10 from the field.

The C’s have now lost five of their last seven games going back to Feb. 7 against the Lakers. All three defeats on their current three-game losing streak have come on the road.

Up Next: The Celtics have a quick turnaround as they try to get back on track after a poor road trip. They have the second game of a back-to-back against the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday at TD Garden.
