  • Kyrie Irving Leaves Game With Sprained Knee, To Be Re-Evaluated On Sunday

The Celtics had a 28-point lead in the second quarter of Saturday's game against the Clippers, and it looked as if the team was going to rebound from Thursday's last-second loss to the Lakers in a big way.

Over the last three seasons, Philly is 38-19 ATS (66.7%) at home against over-.500 teams - the most-profitable team in the National Basketball Association in that spot (ahead of the Celtics, who rank second).

The Celtics were in control of the game when Irving hurt his knee with about five minutes left in the second quarter while attempting to defend Garrett Temple at the top of the key.

"Every group has to work its way into the best chemistry it can be", Stevens said.

The Celtics back-to-back blown 20-point leads certainly calls for some self-reflection upon the team as they fall to the No. 5 seed in the East at 35-21, 6.5 games back from first place where most people expected them to be at this point in the season.

The 26-year-old Australian-born American, the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, underwent left knee surgery last April. "It's about the attitudes that we're playing with", Morris said.

It started with all the trade deadline rumors about Anthony Davis and how the Celtics would like to try to work out a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans in the offseason. It's just not fun.

The Celtics may yet make an addition on the buyout market - perhaps Marcus Morris' twin Markieff or Enes Kanter - but they can not afford to lose Irving for an extended period of time. It's not fun. We're not competing at a high level. "When I look at us I just see a bunch of individuals". "It's unacceptable what we did tonight for a team of our caliber". "This team, I feel a lot different about and I want to push us to that position". "Eight years I've been in the league, I never even thought I could win a championship with the teams I was on".
