Irving to seek 2nd opinion on knee

Boston Celtics expand G2 Tech Group deal

Irving was ruled out for Tuesday night's game at the TD Garden against the Oklahoma City Thunder, which marked the fourth straight game that he's missed.

Terry Rozier's 3-pointer then carved the Thunder lead to just two before Anthony's aforementioned collapse at the free-throw line gave Morris his opportunity to knock off Oklahoma City with a game-winner.

Despite Irving's repeated complaints about his knee's condition last season with the Cavaliers, the soreness appeared to be alleviated through 60-plus games with the Celtics.

Boston will be going to the playoffs regardless of how they wrap up the regular season, although the team will want to finish on a positive note. The Oklahoma City Thunder are averaging 107.4 points on 45.6 percent shooting and allowing 104.1 points on 45.8 percent shooting.

Others said that dropping the city's sanctuary status will likely bring lawsuits. Los Alamitos will also file an amicus brief with a lawsuit from U.S.

Irving scored 22 of his 25 points in the second half to lead the Celtics to their seventh straight of what would be a 16-game winning streak at OKC in November. If Boston finishes with a losing record in March it will be the first time it has finished with a losing record in a calendar month all season. Kyrie Irving leads the team with 24.4 points and 5.1 assists per game in his first year with the team.

Horford also struggled to slow down New Orleans big man and fellow all-star Anthony Davis who had 34 points and 11 rebounds in a game the Pelicans won easily.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said Tatum's role will only increase with guys still out. "They still believe in Boston that the best remedy to get him better and back is rest". Oklahoma City is fourth in the West with their recent hot streak but the conference is so competitive that they're only four games ahead of the ninth-place Nuggets and only 4.5 in front of the 10 place Clippers.

Boston is dealing with injuries and they won't be at full strength here either. However, the hope is the team's training staff can somehow make the knee injury more manageable to play with.

The Associated Press contributed to this report. The late-fourth quarter turned into a shootout between the two teams with the Thunder momentarily keeping the Celtics at bay before Boston put together one heck of a run in the final minute that ended with a game-winning dagger from the 6-foot-9 forward.

In addition to Irving (knee), Jaylen Brown (concussion) and Marcus Smart (thumb) were also out for the Celtics.
