The Clippers made headlines on Wednesday with a deal headlined by Tobias Harris to the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Celtics were listed as 11.5-point favorites in the game, and it's safe to say no one could've predicted the final two quarters would unfold as they did. Kyrie Irving led the team with 24 points, seven rebounds and eight assists including a clutch go-ahead basket late in the game.

Marcus Morris and Aron Baynes are out for the Celtics.

Kyrie Irving left the game in the second quarter with a right knee sprain and was ruled out for the rest of the evening as the C's went on to blow a 28-point halftime lead. Jayson Tatum added 22 points with 10 rebounds and five assists, Daniel Theis scored 20 points while Terry Rozier and Jaylen Browns scored 19 and 18 points respectively. He missed the last 15 games and all of the playoffs a year ago with injuries to his left knee. Coach Brad Stevens said Irving would have more tests on Sunday.

The game was the last in a rivalry week for Boston and Los Angeles that began with the Super Bowl.
