Knee sprain not serious for Celtics' Irving

One particular reason for the Celtics' ongoing meltdown is Kyrie Irving, who suffered a knee sprain in the second quarter and has been ruled out for the remainder of the game. Head coach Brad Stevens said he "didn't know anything about it" after the loss.

It was the largest comeback in the National Basketball Association in the last two seasons and the largest in Clippers history.

Although the Celtics have been playing great as of late, winning ten of their last 11 games, they obviously aren't playing well without Irving, and if the Clippers manage to steal a game away from Boston, this will be the second time that they will be losing against a team from Los Angeles.

The Celtics entered Sunday in fifth in the East at 35-21.

The Los Angeles Clippers have been in a bit of a rut as they've lost four of their last six games and they will be looking to bounce back after getting blown out by the Pacers in a 116-92 road loss on Thursday.

The Celtics will look to bounce back from their consecutive losses when they travel to take on their rival Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday.

Irving stayed in the game for two more minutes before exiting, although the Clippers scored eight unanswered points during that stretch, while Irving missed a driving layup.

"For us to be a championship team, man, this s*** has to change", Morris said.

After the game, Marcus Morris spoke to reporters about the team's attitude issues and how he sees the team functioning more as separate individuals instead of a cohesive unit. "We have to genuinely want to win".

Asked what needs to change, Morris said the team needs to start with a simple aim. That has to be the first goal.

"Trade deadline's over. This is the team we're rocking with". Whatever that takes, I'm with it. If you want to take me out the lineup and get some juice in it, I'm with it. "I'm trying to win". This is what we're going with. "It's unacceptable what we did tonight for a team of our caliber".
