The Celtics Aren't Having Fun—On Court Or With Each Other

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Celtics won 10 of 11—until Los Angeles turned that "Beat LA" slogan Boston's boasted upside down. 

World Series and Super Bowl wins? Great, but C's blew huge leads versus the Lakers and Clippers last week, and were booed out of the Garden after giving away a 28-point lead.

Kyrie Irving suffered a knee sprain. Fortunately, he's day-to-day.

But adding insult to injury, Marcus Morris lashed out. The Celts vet said they're not having fun or enjoying each other. They're a bunch of individuals, and it's been that way for a long time.

"The goal has to be to win, bottom line, we gotta play to win," Morris said. "That's sacrificing playing hard, that's sacrificing being a better teammate, that's sacrificing whatever it is. We have to put it to the side. No one's getting traded. Trade deadline's over. We're competing for a championship, and that's how we gotta approach these games. Win, lose, or draw, man. We're gonna lose games, but we don't have no attitude, we don't have no toughness, we ain't having fun, it's gonna be a long season."

Over the next 11 games, Celts have the Sixers, Bucks, Raptors, Warriors, Lakers, Rockets, and Blazers.

Starts in Philadelphia tomorrow.
