Philadelphia 76ers vs. Boston Celtics - 2/12/19 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Marcin Gortat

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

Irving is averaging 23.6 points and 6.9 assists through 47 appearances this season.

The Celtics and Sixers are now both 36-21 and tied in the Eastern Conference.

The Celtics were listed as 11.5-point favorites in the game, and it's safe to say no one could've predicted the final two quarters would unfold as they did.

Forced to hold court with the press and discuss yet another loss to the Celtics, Philadelphia superstar Joel Embiid had some choice words for the officials that reffed Tuesday night's 112-109 Boston victory.

He also drained a key 3-pointer down the stretch that was a big momentum-changer for the Celtics, the kind of shot that made you wonder, if this could turn into something Boston could rely on, imagine just how risky of a team it would be between now and throughout the postseason. "Those things happen and we all have to pick up for that".

If the Sweden global is passed fit he is likely to start against the French champions at Old Trafford on Tuesday night. Manchester United want to sign Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon in the summer.

"We're going to lose games, but we don't have no attitude, we don't have no toughness, we ain't having fun".

"I'm an idiot - should have kicked it out", said Embiid.

But Morris was not in the mood to make excuses and complained that it was not fun being on the team at the moment. "And when I look at us, I just see a bunch of individuals." he added. "We fought. That's what you have to do to have a chance to win". Whatever it takes, I'm with it. That's the goal. Trade deadline's over. If they want to take me out of the starting lineup, get some juice in there, I'm with it. But I'm trying to win. We're going to have to play with the same kind of goal. So, at the end of the day, man... it's unacceptable what we did tonight.

"It's very unacceptable for a team of our caliber".

Now, with Kyrie Irving hitting free agency post the ongoing season, the Celtics management will need to ensure that they clear up this mess.
