Kyrie Irving of Boston Celtics exits with knee sprain

Marcin Gortat

The sprained right knee that forced Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving from Saturday's loss to the Los Angeles Clippers is not considered serious and his status is day-to-day, ESPN reported Sunday.

It was the largest comeback by any National Basketball Association team in the past two seasons.

The Celtics were in control of the game when Irving hurt his knee with about five minutes left in the second quarter while attempting to defend Garrett Temple at the top of the key.

Per usual, Brad Stevens was quick to place the blame on himself.

Irving, who was named to his sixth career All-Star Game, is averaging 22.1 points, 5.6 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 47 games this season.

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

"For me it's not really about the loss".

"Guys are hanging their heads". It's just not fun, it's not fun. Gordon Hayward led the team with 19 points off the bench, Jayson Tatum and Terry Rozier each scored 16 points while Marcus morris chipped in with 15 points. We're not competing at a high level. "Win, lose, or draw - you're going to lose games - but if we have no attitude, we have no toughness, we're not having fun.it's going to be a long season". We'll see if it helps that the trade deadline drama has blown over.

I'm trying to win and I'm willing to do whatever it takes to win... If they want to take me out of the starting lineup, get some juice in there, 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. The Celtics haven't played since Saturday and they are 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings, but I think the 76ers are a team on the rise and they will prove that with a statement win at home in this one.
