Despite the frustrating loss, Celtics head coach Brad Stevens says he took a lot of positives over his team's performance tonight and really admired their ability to keep fighting following Irving's exit.
"I think we've shown it night in, night out", said Irving.
"If he doesn't feel 100 percent, then we need to have him sit, and so I think that that is something that we've all talked about, and [that's] why he didn't come back in [against Indiana]", Stevens added. "I think he got kneed, but I don't think that that's anything more than a knee-to-knee or knee-to-thigh - right above his knee". Boston was already without the services of All-Star center Al Horford (illness) and shooting guard Jaylen Brown due to his concussion sustained earlier this week in a scary fall against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The soldier received none-life threatening injuries to his left arm and was taken to hospital. A 23-year-old Afghan national confessed to those assaults but denied any political motive.
Irving sat out last Monday's game against the Chicago Bulls to rest his knee, which he said was particularly sore after the Houston Rockets game two days prior. "It's aching a little bit more than I want it to now, so I'm just going to take the necessary time".
"I'm not concerned. Where we are in the season, I'm pretty comfortable", he said. With 15 games remaining in the regular season, Boston is 3.5 games behind the Toronto Raptors for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, with a pair of head-to-head matchups in the final two weeks.

When the knee started aching again on Sunday, Irving and the training staff elected to exercise caution. But a Myles Turner layup followed by a pair of free throws by Oladipo gave IN a 99-95 lead with 10.4 seconds to play-which is when things almost got interesting.
The third quarter was indeed where the Celtics let it get away, especially considering their 50-40 halftime lead. Over the remainder of the year, numberFire's models project him to record 20.5 points, 10.4 rebounds, 4.0 assists, 0.9 steals, and 2.1 blocks per contest. "We feel like we have a deep roster, and we need him to be healthy and fresh".
"I don't know. I hope not", Irving said. I hope not. I've been down that road before. "That's the last thing I want to do".
