A Boston Celtics player had a brutally honest quote after his team’s crushing loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night.
The Celtics blew a 28-point lead to the Clippers on Saturday night, also losing star point guard Kyrie Irving to a knee sprain in the process.
Boston’s veteran forward, Marcus Morris, did not hold back in his postgame quotes.
Morris says that the Celtics’ attitude as a team has been poor and that the game just hasn’t been fun.
“For me, it’s not really about the loss, it’s about the attitude that we’re playing with,” Morris said, per Boston.com.
“Guys are hanging their heads. It’s not fun. We’re not competing at a high level. Even though we’re winning, it’s still not fun. I don’t see the joy in the game.”
Morris’ comments come a couple of days after the Celtics blew an 18-point lead to the Lakers. The forward watches other teams around the league and he sees things that aren’t happening within his team.
“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,” Morris added. “They’re enjoying everything, they’re playing together, and they’re playing to win. And when I look at us, I just see a bunch of individuals.”
The Celtics are still in decent shape at 35-21 on the season, but Boston is not looking like the NBA Finals juggernaut many expected it to be.
