In a season which has seen the Boston Celtics fight through their fair share of ups and downs, last night's collapse against the Los Angeles may have been one of their worst showings.
The Clippers outscored the Celtics 75-44 following Irving's injury.
It was the largest comeback in the National Basketball Association in the last two seasons and the largest in Clippers history. It was the biggest blown lead by the Celtics since December 5, 2003.
The Los Angeles Clippers have been in a bit of a rut as they've lost four of their last six games and they will be looking to bounce back after getting blown out by the Pacers in a 116-92 road loss on Thursday. Brad Stevens said that Irving's knee appeared to "buckle".

"For us to be a championship team, man, this (crap) has to change", he said.
"For me, it's not really about the loss, it's about the attitude that we're playing with", Morris told reporters after the loss.
The Celtics may yet make an addition on the buyout market - perhaps Marcus Morris' twin Markieff or Enes Kanter - but they can not afford to lose Irving for an extended period of time. "And again, I need to look at myself first and figure out what I can do to help that not happen". "It's about the attitude that we're playing with". "Guys are hanging their heads". It's just not fun, it's not fun. It's not fun. We're not competing at a high level. Even when we're winning it's still not fun. I don't see the joy in the game.
"I watch all these other teams in the league, guys jumping on the bench, jumping on the court.when I look at us I see a bunch of individuals". As a team, the Celtics shot 48 percent from the field and 16 of 38 from the 3-point line as they dominated early to lead by as many as 18 points in the second quarter, but the Lakers fought back with 42 points in the third quarter before stealing the game at the buzzer.
"Trade deadline's over. This is the team we're rocking with". "We have to genuinely want to win".
