Marcus Morris calls out Celtics teammates after embarrassing loss to Clippers

The Clippers were the team that sent the NBA trade deadline dominoes falling

Two days after losing to the Los Angeles Lakers on a buzzer-beater, the Boston Celtics dropped another tough game at home to an LA team.

Kyrie Irving's minor injury troubles continued on Saturday night during the Boston Celtics' matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers.

He entered Saturday averaging 23.8 points per game in 32.9 minutes across 46 appearances. Jayson Tatum added 22 points with 10 rebounds and five assists, Daniel Theis scored 20 points while Terry Rozier and Jaylen Browns scored 19 and 18 points respectively.

The Clippers outscored the Celtics 75-44 following Irving's injury. 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.

Los Angeles' first-round pick is lottery-protected; if the team makes the playoffs, the pick will go to the Boston Celtics.

"We had yesterday's practice and today's shootaround so we were able to put a couple of things in", coach Doc Rivers said.

The Celtics were unable to do their usual pregame walkthrough because of a 1 p.m. Boston Bruins game that went into overtime and delayed the changeover from ice to parquet.

Stevens also said Irving's knee appeared to "buckle" and he expects more tests to be run.

Clippers: Monday's game against the Timberwolves completes a six-game trip, during which the team will have traveled approximately 6,659 miles - the fifth-most in the league this season, according to travelmath.com.
