Kyrie Irving leaves game with knee injury

Avery Bradley

The Celtics are now level with the Sixers with 36 wins against 21 defeats and will take encouragement from a win achieved without Kyrie Irving, who was out with a strained knee.

Embiid scored 23 points and pulled down 14 rebounds in the loss, but also was called for five fouls and didn't receive the whistle on that crucial late-game play. He scored a combined 13 points in the Celtics' previous two meetings against the Sixers, however, Tuesday night, Horford reverted back to the kind of scoring we saw in last year's Eastern Conference Semifinals.

It was the largest comeback in the National Basketball Association in the past two seasons and the largest in Clippers history.

Celtics: Host the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night.

These were the parting words from Joel Embiid on Tuesday night after his new-look Philadelphia 76ers went to Boston and lost 112-109. Something tells me these two teams will meet in the playoffs, and Embiid will have to step up if they're going to hang with them. "Those things happen and we all have to pick up for that". We didn't get too high or too low.

"I mean, for me, it's not really about the loss", Morris said.

Morris had so much fun in his hometown of Philadelphia, that he purchased each and every one of his teammates cheesesteaks sandwiches after the win. "And when I look at us, I just see a bunch of individuals".

"You saw a way tougher, more aggressive team (in the Clippers)", Morris said.

Now, with Kyrie Irving hitting free agency post the ongoing season, the Celtics management will need to ensure that they clear up this mess. "We have to genuinely want to win". Whatever that takes, I'm with it. "I'm trying to win". If they want to take me out of the starting lineup, get some juice in there, I'm with it.

Garrett Temple, Ivica Zubac, JaMychal Green and Landry Shamet all made their debuts for the Clippers after being acquired by Los Angeles at the trade deadline. End of the day, man, it's unacceptable what we did tonight.
