Irving day-to-day with knee sprain

Irving day-to-day with knee sprain

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.

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.

The Boston Celtics led by 20 points on Friday when they hosted the Los Angeles Lakers - they lost that game at the buzzer. With their heads turned down, it was veteran forward Marcus Morris who gave his teammates a dose of reality after the game - his comments doting on a lack of "joy" and "team play". "I told them literally to keep the game as simple as possible; imagine you're in high school in a park and you're trying to win and there's no next". The Celtics were well in control of things, up until the point in which Kyrie Irving succumbed to an injury and was forced out of the game. The Boston guard was on the floor, hoping for a call, when Beverly hit his first 3.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Kyrie Irving's right knee sprain isn't serious and expected to be day-to-day. Boston led by 20 at the time, and the team quickly announced that he would not return.

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

Irving missed the end of last season and the playoffs after having surgery on his left knee to remove two screws from his patella that were inserted in 2015 to fix a fracture he suffered during that year's NBA Finals.

The Red Sox also beat the Dodgers in the World Series, back in October.

Ivica Zubac, whom the Clippers acquired from a trade with the Lakers, now has 12 points and nine rebounds. The Celtics only scored 12 points in the third and 26 in the fourth while coughing up 42 fourth quarter points. The Celtics went 25 for 31 from the free throw line, snapping a streak of two straight games without missing a foul shot.
