Celtics tally largest first-half points total vs. Clippers

For what it's worth, head coach Brad Stevens shouldered the brunt of the blame for the team's poor play.

The sprained right knee that forced Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving from Saturday's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers is not considered serious and his status is day-to-day, ESPN reported Sunday.

The Clippers outscored the Celtics 75-44 after Irving left, coming back from 28 points down to win 123-112. Kyrie Irving led the team with 24 points, seven rebounds and eight assists including a clutch go-ahead basket late in the game.

The Celtics dropped to 35-21 following Saturday's defeat and stand fifth in the Eastern Conference standings.

Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics have been in great form as they've won 10 of their last 12 games, but they will be looking to regroup after getting burned at the buzzer by the Lakers in a 129-128 home loss on Thursday.

Another added, "sometimes you need to take extreme measures to save the environment, but I think this is too extreme". One student had a more serious view of the plan, saying, "if we didn't do that, we're going to be killing ourselves".

Zion Williamson just made the most incredible block
Ty Jerome, who averages 13 points and 4.9 assists per game for UVA, is questionable to play tonight due to a back injury. RJ Barrett's six 3-pointers and five more from Reddish on Saturday night at Virginia helped erase that game plan.

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.

"I watch all these other teams around the league and guys are up on the bench".

The Clippers have enjoyed plenty of bright spots during the season, but I wouldn't expect too much from them the rest of the season as they have no intentions to make the playoffs if the trade of Tobias Harris was anything to go by.

"For us to be a championship team, this (stuff) has to change", Morris said. We'll see if it helps that the trade deadline drama has blown over. "We have to genuinely want to win". If they want to take me out of the starting lineup, get some juice in there, I'm with it. This is what we're going with. But I'm trying to win. So, at the end of the day, man... it's unacceptable what we did tonight.
