Boston Celtics star Marcus Morris SLAMS team-mates after Clippers defeat

Boston Celtics star Marcus Morris SLAMS team-mates after Clippers defeat

But, with 25 games left in the regular season, how long will Brown wait to learn the right lineup pairings, the right members of his rotation, the right way to coach his team?

The Celtics, who also gave up an 18-point lead against the Los Angeles Lakers two nights earlier, lost Kyrie Irving to a knee injury late in the second quarter.

The Clippers outscored the Celtics 75-44 from that point on, coming back from 28 points down to beat Boston 123-112.

Joel Embiid had 23 points and 14 rebounds and Jimmy Butler scored 22 for Philadelphia. Irving ultimately missed the Celtics' run to the Eastern Conference finals last spring.

Celtics' fans are breathing a collective sigh of relief over this injury news, as the last thing the demoralized squad needed was to be without their superstar point guard.

A matchup against the Boston Celtics might not seem like the ideal time for experimentation.




The 26-year-old Australian-born American, the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, underwent left knee surgery last April. I just thought the whole night we played the right way and we just tried to stay within ourselves and we didn't get too high or too low.

"Like I said, that's on me". We're going to lose games, but we don't have no attitude, we don't have no toughness, we ain't having fun.

Morris had so much fun in his hometown of Philadelphia, that he purchased each and every one of his teammates cheesesteaks sandwiches after the win. "So I'll go back and figure out what I can do better, what we can do better, and we'll go from there". "We fought. That's what you have to do to have a chance to win". That's a win, I guess.

Clearly, the Celtics have some issues that they need to iron out before they can reach their full potential as title contenders.

With no significant change made before the trade deadline, this is the roster that they'll have to stick with for the rest of the season.

"It's very unacceptable for a team of our caliber".
