Boston Celtics rumors: Kyrie Irving injury could be a positive

Marcin Gortat

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.

So not only were the Celtics taking bad shots-many of which were far too early in possessions-their defensive intensity was non-existent.

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

This time last week Boston sports fans lined the streets of their beloved city for yet another joyous championship parade.

The Boston Celtics are coming off two of the ugliest losses we have seen in a long time.

The 26-year-old Australian-born American, the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, underwent left knee surgery last April.

"It's just not fun", Morris said. He, along with the rest of the Celtics, is hopeful Boston will be able to play the right way - "with effort and team-ness" - to close out the season. Even though we're winning, it's still not fun. Irving is a great isolation player who can use his impressive handles to score, but maybe they have relied on him too much. "We have to genuinely want to win". Whatever it takes, I'm with it. If you want to take me out of the lineup and get some juice in it, I'm with it.

It started with all the trade deadline rumors about Anthony Davis and how the Celtics would like to try to work out a trade with the New Orleans Pelicans in the offseason. So, at the end of the day, man... it's unacceptable what we did tonight. I watch all these other teams around the league and guys are up on the bench, they're jumping on the court, they're doing all of this other stuff that looks like they're enjoying their teammates' success, they're enjoying everything, and they're playing together and they're playing to win.
