Boston Celtics vs. L.A. Clippers - 2/9/19 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Preview | Clippers at Celtics

As a team, the Celtics shot 48 percent from the field and 16 of 38 from the 3-point line as they dominated early to lead by as many as 18 points in the second quarter, but the Lakers fought back with 42 points in the third quarter before stealing the game at the buzzer.

The Celtics ran up a 68-40 lead with just over four minutes left second quarter thanks to 14 points from Irving and another 12 points off the bench from Gordon Hayward.

It was a dispiriting night all around for the Boston Celtics on Saturday as the club coughed up a 28-point lead to the Los Angeles Clippers and lost star point guard Kyrie Irving to injury.

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

Irving stayed in the game for two more minutes before exiting, although the Clippers scored eight unanswered points during that stretch, while Irving missed a driving layup.

Boston fans were not pleased with the Celtics showing against the Clippers Saturday and they let the team hear it as the clock wound down. The Celtics followed their highest-scoring half of the season with their lowest-scoring quarter and lost at home to a team from Los Angeles for the second straight time. Gallinari followed with a jumper to give the Clippers their first lead.

Following Sunday's loss, Celtics' forward Marcus Morris spoke in depth about the commotion surrounding the team this season.

Kyrie finished with 14 points on 4-of-7 shooting, two assists, and a rebound.

The Red Sox also beat the Dodgers in the World Series, back in October. "Those things happen and we all have to pick up for that". That's the goal. Trade deadline's over.

And atop of the team's attitude issues, he reiterated their lack of enjoyment this season - "Immean... it hasn't been fun for a long time, man". Coach Brad Stevens said they went over the plans in the family room instead of on the court. I just don't see the joy in the game.

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

Celtics: Fell to 22-8 at home.
