All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving left the Celtics' game Saturday night against the LA Clippers in Boston with a right knee sprain and did not return. He also added a couple assists to Montrezl Harrell in the first few minutes of play, finishing with 12 points in just 20 minutes of action. They have won 10 of their last 12 games, with their two losses during that stretch coming in close games to the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers.

Irving sustained the injury while contesting a Garrett Temple 3-pointer in the second. "I'm really looking forward to getting them in", Doc Rivers said.

If it weren't for insiders and social media, Barnes merely would have played the game then been informed when it was finished.

Bradley, 28, started 49 of the Clippers' first 50 games this season and averaged 8.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 29.9 minutes per game. In a 12-season National Basketball Association career that has taken him to four teams, Gortat is averaging 9.9 points and 7.9 rebounds. It was the biggest blown lead by a Celtics squad since December 5, 2003. With the tough loss, Boston fell to 35-20 overall and 22-7 at home. He averaged 6.3 points in 36 games with Memphis this season.

The Clippers made headlines on Wednesday with a deal headlined by Tobias Harris to the Philadelphia 76ers. The Celtics were one of the hottest teams in the league before they slipped up against the Lakers on Thursday, so they'll be eager to bounce back with a statement win here.
