Irving day-to-day with knee sprain

12 February 2019

Irving, who's dealt with knee problems before, doesn't appear to have a serious injury on his hands.

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.

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

On Sunday, they led by as much as 28 points to the LA Clippers when Kyrie Irving left the game with a sprained right knee and it was all downhill after that - they lost by 11.

Kyrie finished with 14 points on 4-of-7 shooting, two assists, and a rebound.

The Boston Celtics are now dominating the Los Angeles Clippers at TD Garden.

"Yeah, I mean, I really do".

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

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.

In a season which has seen the Boston Celtics fight through their fair share of ups and downs, last night's collapse against the Los Angeles may have been one of their worst showings. I just don't see the joy in the game. Now, Morris is calling on his teammates to put any drama behind them and focus on winning.

"I watch all these other teams around the league and guys are up on the bench, jumping on the court, doing all this stuff that looks like they're enjoying their teammates' success", Morris continued. "Win, lose, or draw - you're going to lose games - but if we have no attitude, we have no toughness, we're not having fun.it's going to be a long season".

Morris hinted at trade deadline drama that may have built up before last Thursday. "I'm trying to win".
