'I'm an idiot,' says Embiid after Sixers' loss to Celtics

For the Celtics, Al Horford scored 23 points and grabbed 14 boards, while Jayson Tatum recorded 20 points and 10 rebounds in the absence of Kyrie Irving (knee).

All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving left the Celtics' game Saturday night against the LA Clippers in Boston with a right knee sprain and did not return.

Embiid scored 23 points and pulled down 14 rebounds in the loss, but also was called for five fouls and didn't receive the whistle on that crucial late-game play. The Celtics followed their highest-scoring half of the season with their lowest-scoring quarter and lost at home to a team from Los Angeles for the second straight time.

Instead, he was attacking the basket, limiting his dribbles and knocking down open looks that were created organically in sync with the flow of the Celtics' offense, including a big 3-pointer towards the end of the fourth quarter that really made a difference in the Celtics' most unlikely win of the season.

Meanwhile, the Philadelphia 76ers have been on a nice run with nine wins in their last 13 games and they will be full of confidence after blowing past the Lakers by 143-120 on Sunday.

"That was fun, fun", Morris said after the game. Even when we're winning it's still not fun.

"For us to be a championship team, this (stuff) has to change", Morris 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.

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

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.

"I should've kicked it out or took it out and shot it", Embiid admitted. At times tonight you think, 'well, might you get Jonah [Bolden] in the game?' As I admitted in the pre-press conference, there's a tolerance level where I have where I want to learn. That's a win, I guess. "It's unacceptable for what we did with a team of our caliber".
