Marcus Morris explains why he called out his team

"Kyrie's not going [to Philadelphia]", said coach Brad Stevens.

"I watch all these other teams around the league and guys are up on the bench". "They're enjoying everything, they're playing together, and they're playing to win".

Adding insult to injury - or maybe injury to insult - the Celtics lost Kyrie Irving to a right knee sprain in the second quarter, and the All-Star point guard did not return. The Lakers and Clippers are two of the teams most closely tied to Irving, so it can't help that the Celtics lost to them while he's still playing on the Celtics.

Just two days after the LA Lakers rallied from 18 points down to stun Boston, the new-look LA Clippers climbed out of a 28-point hole to shock the Celtics, 123-112, in the National Basketball Association on Saturday, February 9 (Sunday, February 10, Manila time). In his final season in Utah, Hayward averaged 21.9 points, while hitting 39.8 percent of 3-pointers. Recently, Boston rattled off a 9-1 stretch before dropping back-to-back games to the L.A. teams at home, a run that illustrated the great potential of this team and the frustrating inconsistency in level of play they've shown this season. Last month, Irving called out his younger teammates by calling James, apologizing to his former Cavs partner for creating problems early in his career.

Morris started and scored 15 points and had six rebounds in the loss.

The NFL Network has agreed to broadcast 19 games throughout the entire season, while CBS will air one AAF game per week. There are no kickoffs, with each team starts a possession after a score or at the start of a half at its 25-yard line.

The young, homegrown core hasn't carried as much weight as expected, either.

"Every group has to work its way into the best chemistry it can be", Stevens said.

A former Laker is helping the Clippers overcome the Celtics' lead. With Toronto, Milwaukee and Philadelphia all making big additions at the trade deadline, the last thing the Celtics need is an injury to a key player.

"It's tough to win four straight and lose three straight", Morris said a few weeks earlier.

"For us to be a championship team, man, this s-- has to change", he said.
