Kyrie Irving has been diagnosed with a strained right knee after an MRI in Boston, the team announced Sunday. As a team, the Clippers shot just 43 percent from the field and six of 17 from the 3-point line, but with the recent trade of their leading scorer in Tobias Harris, the team came out flat and were always trailing after falling behind by 71-53 going into halftime.
The Boston Celtics guard left Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers with five minutes left in the second quarter after he hurt his knee while attempting to defend Garrett Temple and didn't return.
Irving has been averaging 23.6 points per game this season and 6.9 assists per game.
The Boston Celtics are now dominating the Los Angeles Clippers at TD Garden. "It's just not fun", Morris said.
The loss was one thing, the comments from Marcus Morris after was another. "So, I'll go back and figure out what I can do better, what we can do better, and we'll go from there". "Guys are hanging their heads. even though we're winning it's not fun".
"I watch all these other teams in the league, guys jumping on the bench, jumping on the court.when I look at us I see a bunch of individuals".
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, man, this (crap) has to change", he said. "We have to genuinely want to win". If you want to take me out the lineup and get some juice in it, I'm with it.
