Celtics' Brown, Morris downplay shoving incident

Kyrie Irving Says Celtics Were Sparked By A Team Meeting

Kyrie Irving Says Celtics Were Sparked By A Team Meeting

The team remains one of the deepest teams on paper in the National Basketball Association.

The Celtics have won seven out of 10 and are 25-16, but that still falls below the lofty expectations they had before the season.

Marcus Morris and Jaylen Brown say they've moved on following a video of Morris shoving Brown during a timeout. "To find yourself in a situation where you continue to be rollercoaster where players are shoving one another, these are the kinds of things concerning me because I didn't expect to see this from a Brad Stevens team who we talked about previous year as being the best young coach in basketball". They have depth at forward with Hayward and Jayson Tatum.

"It's something where those things happen to best friends even", Ainge told the Boston Herald's Steve Bulpett. Marcus Morris earns the best grade as he has become an integral part of the team.

Walker and Mfiondu Kabengele comprise a talented core that, on their home floor, could potentially push this Duke team a bit. Duke: The Blue Devils were on the ropes but pulled out a road victory in a tough environment, doing it without Williamson.

"We could pinpoint a lot of turning points", Irving said, via ESPN.com, following Wednesday's 135-108 win over the Pacers. Celtics need to make a big run to make to make up ground on the rest of the Eastern Conference.

"You have got guys like Kawhi Leonard, guys like "Greek Freak" standing in their way".

He continued: "These are the things I don't think some of my teammates have faced just every single day. So the things you're doing, that you've done your entire career of being able to coast by in certain situations...being on a championship ball club, you can't get away with that".
