Kyrie Irving listed day-to-day by NBA Celtics with knee strain

L.A. Clippers Acquire Ja Mychal Green and Garrett Temple

Celtics coach Brad Stevens told reporters after the loss Saturday night that Irving's right knee appeared to "buckle" in the second quarter while attempting to defend LA's Garrett Temple at the top of the key and that the 26-year-old All-Star will undergo more tests Sunday.

"I just want to win and I want to have fun - we gotta have fun doing this thing man", he continued. He noted multiple times that the recent stretch - even when the team was winning - has not been "fun". The Celtics have given up two double-digit leads in two straight games. Joel Embiid led the team with 37 points on 12 of 16 shooting with 14 rebounds and three assists, Tobias Harris seems to be fitting in just fine as he added 22 points while JJ Redick chipped in with 21 points and five assists.

But Stevens said the injury wasn't to blame for his team's collapse.

Veteran Marcus Morris provided an explanation to why the most talented team in the East has the conference's fifth-best record; an answer that only produces more questions.

"To be in this position and have a chance to compete for something like that, it means a lot to me", Morris said.

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers have been on a nice run with nine wins in their last 13 games and they will be full of confidence after blowing past the Lakers by 143-120 on Sunday. Irving is a great isolation player who can use his impressive handles to score, but maybe they have relied on him too much. "I would be lying if I said we knew our identity because the identity of a good team don't do that". "This team, I feel a lot different about and I want to push us to that position". That has to be the first goal. "I think that I need to look at myself first and figure out what I can do to help that not happen". Whatever it takes, I'm with it. This is what we're going with. "It's unacceptable for what we did with a team of our caliber".
