Kyrie Irving, Terry Rozier Talk Celtics' Team Meeting After Ending Losing Streak

We have seen that brand of basketball from the Celtics this season, but not recently.

But by the end, it was loud and intense and, alas for the Celts, a fourth straight loss as they begin their four-game tour of the West.

Russell Westbrook made a go-ahead layup with 3.3 seconds left to help the Oklahoma City Thunder rally from a 15-point second-half deficit and beat the Brooklyn Nets 109-108.

Considering they already have Malcolm Brogdon locked in as their backup point guard, they could let Jordan Clarkson play off the ball and provide a much-needed shooting stroke off the bench. "He's still got a long way to go".

Rozier simply said the goal of the meeting was to "play better as a group". "But, again, I think that he cut his hand in the hotel on glass sometime this afternoon".

"I was told today that they've been talking to the Lakers, which is stunning because why they would do a deal with the Lakers that could potentially recruit LeBron, but that just shows you they are going all over the league trying to figure this out. It's over with. We've got to turn around and try to come up with a win tomorrow", Smart said after the game (ESPN). "Coach said we have to do something unique tonight and that's what the great teams do, and I feel like we're trending in the right direction". So we just wanted to create a few mismatches and I think we did that. But his intellectual synergy with head coach Brad Stevens has been spot-on throughout the season, as there is mutual admiration between player and coach. But I thought that he got it into the operating area and got a pretty clean look at it. It marked just the sixth time in his short career that Ojeleye, a sharpshooter a year ago in college, drilled multiple 3-pointers in a single game.

Said Irving, I mean, Marcus took the rebound and went the length of the court. "We didn't do enough the last couple games". "It's just something that we all just have to get better at".

The Celtics rank second in assists allowed per game (19.9) while the Clippers rank 21st (23.6). "You're going to have your ups and downs, it's a marathon", Stevens said. "I'm not going to say anything about that".

"We did the best we could on Lou, Blake was obviously a huge concern coming without Al", Stevens, whose team held the duo to a combined 43 points on a 14-for-39 night from the floor, acknowledged. "We need to do a better job of finishing at the rim, and we need to do a better job of drawing contact there".

"Boston's most famous fan in sports media was a little more, uh, blunt". Sometimes they would not come out of the half well, others they didn't finish.

No. 3 pick from last June Jayson Tatum outscored No. 2 choice Lonzo Ball, 4-0 - and Ball didn't play (sore left knee).

LOS ANGELES - Kyle Kuzma scored 17 of his 28 points in a phenomenal fourth quarter, and surging Los Angeles sent Boston to its fourth consecutive loss.

OAKLAND, Calif. - Stephen Curry scored 17 of his 32 points in the third quarter to go with seven assists and six rebounds, and Golden State used a big second half to beat NY.
