Kyrie Irving leaves game with knee injury

Now a week later, many of those same fans will turn on their TVs Tuesday night and possibly witness their beloved Celtics hit rock bottom in a huge game against the rival Sixers, who only got stronger at last week's trade deadline. The blown lead resulted in Celtics forward Marcus Morris sounding off about the state of the team - essentially saying that there's too much individual play, rather than solid team chemistry.

Still, a 21-point halftime lead at home against a team that recently shipped off arguably its best scorer appeared to be a large enough cushion, even without Irving.

But Stevens said the injury wasn't to blame for his team's collapse. "But it is disappointed to have 20-point leads in consecutive games and lose, that's for sure", Stevens told reporters.

The 26-year-old Australian-born American, the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, underwent left knee surgery last April.

Morris is the latest Celtic to publicly comment on issues between teammates behind the scenes.

With the White House kitchen too understaffed to cater a meal, Mr Trump stepped in: He ordered burgers, french fries and pizza. Conley said Trump did not undergo any procedures requiring sedation or anesthesia, meaning he did not have a colonoscopy.

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.

Morris started and scored 15 points and had six rebounds in the loss. It's just not fun. We're not competing at a high level. "Right now, we just need to be more consistent in that regard". "It's about the attitudes that we're playing with", Morris said.

Irving, who helped Cleveland win the 2016 National Basketball Association title before being traded to Boston in 2017, helped the United States group of National Basketball Association stars to 2016 Rio Olympic gold. That has to be the first goal. Whatever that takes, I'm with it.

The Celtics' visit will be the third post-trade deadline contest featuring new faces, chief among them Tobias Harris. "It's unacceptable what we did tonight for a team of our caliber". This is what we're going with.
