The Boston Celtics led by 20 points on Thursday when they hosted the Los Angeles Lakers - they lost that game at the buzzer.

On Saturday they led by as much as 28 points to the LA Clippers when Kyrie Irving left the game with a sprained right knee and it was all down hill after that - they lost by 11.

Following Saturday's loss, Celtics' forward Marcus Morris spoke in depth about the commotion surrounding the team this season.

"For me it's not really about the loss it's the attitude we're playing with," Morris started. "Guys are hanging their heads ... even though we're winning it's not fun."

Boston has plenty of ups and downs this season between trade rumours, locker room turmoil and rough losing streaks.

"I watch all these other teams around the league and guys are up on the bench, jumping on the court, doing all this stuff that looks like they're enjoying their teammates success," Morris continued.

They're enjoying everything and playing to win. When I look at us I just see a bunch of individuals."

The Celtics back-to-back blown 20-point leads certainly calls for some self reflection upon the team as they fall to the No. 5 seed in the East at 35-21, 6.5 games back from first place where most people expected them to be at this point in the season.

When Morris was asked about what has to change he started with the way the Celtics' carry themselves, "we're going to lose games but we don't have no attitude, we don't have no toughness."

And atop of the team's attitude issues, he reiterated their lack of enjoyment this season - "Immean… it hasn't been fun for a long time, man. It hasn't been fun for a long time."

I just want to win and I want to have fun - we gotta have fun doing this thing man," he continued. "I look at all these other teams and guys are moving the ball, guys are helping each other out on defense… when I look at this team I don't see that.

I'm trying to win and I'm willing to do whatever it takes to win… It's unacceptable what we did tonight for a team of our caliber."

The entire post-game interview with Morris can be found below.

The Celtics will look to bounce back from their consecutive losses when they travel to take on their rival Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday.

Boston is 2-0 against the 76ers this season, defeating them on NBA opening night and on Christmas Day.
