BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Celtics blew a pair of huge leads their last two games in losses to the Lakers and Clippers, then Marcus Morris vented. The vet said the Celts aren't having fun and they're acting like a bunch of individuals.
The Celtics Aren't Having Fun—On Court Or With Each Other
Coach Brad Stevens said he has no issue with those comments. Losing isn't fun.
Yesterday, Morris said his frustration comes from a good place. He just believes so deeply in the team.
"We got to enjoy this process," Morris said. "I'm not really about to BS stuff, I want to win a championship, I understand what it takes to get there. To be in this position, to have a chance to compete for something like that, it means a lot to me, because you don't get the opportunity at all in this league. Eight years I've been here, it's not a crazy amount but eight years I've been in the league. I never even thought I could win a championship with the teams I was on, and this team, I feel a lot different about, and I just want to push us to that position."
Even with the recent skid, Boston's won 10 of 13 entering tonight's clash in Philadelphia at 8 p.m.
The Sixers have won two straight since trading for Tobias Harris.
The C's won't have Kyrie Irving because of his strained right knee and, without the All-Star, the group's just 1-11 its last dozen road games against winning teams.
