Kyrie Irving has been diagnosed with a strained right knee after an MRI in Boston, the team announced Sunday.

The Boston Celtics just dodged a major bullet after finding out the results of star point guard Kyrie Irving's MRI on his right knee sprain. The Celtics led 74-53 at halftime, but the Clippers outscored them 28-12 in the third.

Whether it's Tobias Harris going 0-6 from 3-point range or Joel Embiid having an off night, those are realities of an 82-game National Basketball Association schedule. He scored a combined 13 points in the Celtics' previous two meetings against the Sixers, however, Tuesday night, Horford reverted back to the kind of scoring we saw in last year's Eastern Conference Semifinals.

Boston appeared to be cruising to their 36th win of the season before the Clippers - inspired by Landry Shamet making four three-pointers in the fourth quarter on his debut - completed the largest comeback in the league for two seasons.

These were the parting words from Joel Embiid on Tuesday night after his new-look Philadelphia 76ers went to Boston and lost 112-109.

"We had yesterday's practice and today's shootaround so we were able to put a couple of things in", coach Doc Rivers said. It's not fun. We're not competing at a high level.

"I was sleep-walking through three quarters", he said. We're going to lose games, but we don't have no attitude, we don't have no toughness, we ain't having fun. He said if a move to the bench helped the team, he'd be all for it.

Irving, who helped Cleveland win the 2016 National Basketball Association title before being traded to Boston in 2017, helped the U.S. group of National Basketball Association stars to 2016 Rio Olympic gold. "That's the goal. The trade deadline's over". If you want to take me out the lineup and get some juice in it, I'm with it.

The final third, as I've admitted ... the tournament, looking at different people, is always on my mind, trying to figure that out when it matters most in April.

The Celtics may yet make an addition on the buyout market - perhaps Marcus Morris' twin Markieff or Enes Kanter - but they can not afford to lose Irving for an extended period of time. So, at the end of the day, man - it's unacceptable what we did tonight.
