Kyrie Irving day-to-day with strained right knee

The Celtics' collapse corresponded to the loss of Kyrie Irving, who left with a sprained knee in the second quarter, when the game seemed comfortably in hand.

After leading 74-53 at halftime, the Celtics allowed the Clippers to make a 28-12 run in the third quarter.

Boston recently gave up an 18-point lead to the Los Angeles Lakers, in a Thursday night loss at Staples Center.

Reports have also stated that a few Celtics players are unhappy with the number of minutes Brad Stevens is letting Gordon Hayward have.

"There's no excuses", Stevens told NBC Sports Boston. I want to learn as much as I can about the group that we have and all these things with Jonathon [Simmons] and Boban and Jonah, etc., all on the table for me to do that.

"I used to get into it with him steady", McHale said as the broadcast came back from commercial.

"I mean, it hasn't been fun for a long time, man", said Morris. Guys are hanging their heads. We're not competing at a high level.

In a game that featured eight lead changes and nine ties, the Celtics turned over the ball just six times. They'll face the 76ers in Philadelphia on Tuesday. "And when I look at us, I just see a bunch of individuals." he added. I thought we had one, and as soon as I shot it, I looked and said, 'I'm stupid.' But, like I said, that's on me. "We fought, and that's what you have to do to have a chance to win". That has to be the first goal.

"I should've kicked it out or took it out and shot it", Embiid admitted.

"If they want to take me out of the starting lineup and get some juice in there, I'm with it", he continued.

The final third, as I've admitted ... the tournament, looking at different people, is always on my mind, trying to figure that out when it matters most in April. Danilo Gallinari had 19 points and 10 rebounds and trade deadline acquisition Landry Shamet scored 13 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter.
