Another Hard Fought Battle With Boston Goes to Celtics | Philadelphia 76ers

L.A. Clippers Waive Marcin Gortat

For the Celtics, Al Horford scored 23 points and grabbed 14 boards, while Jayson Tatum recorded 20 points and 10 rebounds in the absence of Kyrie Irving (knee).

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. The Celtics blew a 28-point lead and fell 123-112 in that game.

Joel Embiid had 23 points and 14 rebounds and Jimmy Butler scored 22 for Philadelphia.

With the trade deadline having passed, Morris said there are no more excuses for the Celtics, who dropped to 35-21 with the loss, fifth in the Eastern Conference standings, 6.5 games behind first-place Toronto, which has the best record in the National Basketball Association at 41-14. To the relief of Celtics fans everywhere, Gordon Hayward answered the call.

The Boston Celtics still own the Philadelphia 76ers no matter who is on the court. 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.

Leno: Arsenal Ready To Pounce On Top-Four After Chelsea Result
Alexandre Lacazette admitted Arsenal should have scored more than two goals in their win over Huddersfield. After 26 games we are on our way and our motivation is very great and we've brought our target closer.

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

"We understood Philly's been playing at a high level", Horford said.

"I mean, it hasn't been fun for a long time, man", said Morris. Even when we're winning it's still not fun. The force everybody played with and we just let it go. "It's about the attitude that we're playing with". They outscored the Celtics 75-44 after Irving departed. "We fought, and that's what you have to do to have a chance to win".

"I should've kicked it out or took it out and shot it", Embiid admitted. If they want to take me out of the starting lineup, get some juice in there, I'm with it.

With no significant change made before the trade deadline, this is the roster that they'll have to stick with for the rest of the season. "I'm trying to win". "It's unacceptable for what we did with a team of our caliber".
