Morris sounds off after Celtics' collapse

Two days after losing to the Los Angeles Lakers on a buzzer-beater, the Boston Celtics dropped another tough game at home to an LA team.

Boston Celtics veteran forward Marcus Morris had a stern message for his team following their complete collapse against the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night.

Per usual, Brad Stevens was quick to place the blame on himself.

Irving suffered the injury in the second quarter while guarding Garrett Temple. Irving ultimately missed the Celtics' run to the Eastern Conference finals last spring.

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. I don't see the joy in the game. Since starting the season with a 10-10 record, they have gone 25-10, with All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving (23.8 points and 7.0 assists per game) leading the way.

Kyler Murray's decision sent both football and baseball Twitter into a frenzy
On Monday, quarterback Kyler Murray announced that he has chose to pick football over baseball. Now, Murray will turn his sights toward becoming a first-round choice in the April NFL draft .

"I watch all these other teams around the league and guys are up on the bench - they're jumping on the court, they're enjoying their teammates' success".

"For us to be a championship team, man, this shit has to change", Morris said.

"I just want to win and I want to have fun - we gotta have fun doing this thing man", he continued.

Morris hinted at trade deadline drama that may have built up before last Thursday. We'll see if it helps that the trade deadline drama has blown over. That has to be the first goal. If you want to take me out of the lineup and get some juice in it, I'm with it. But I'm trying to win.

"This is the team we're rocking with". We're going to lose games, but we don't have no attitude, we don't have no toughness, we ain't having fun. "It's unacceptable for what we did with a team of our caliber".
