Adding insult to injury, the Boston Celtics blew a 28-point lead on their home floor as they dropped Saturday night’s game against the Los Angeles Clippers, 123-112.

According to ESPN Stats and Info, it marked the largest come-from-behind victory in Clippers history and was the team’s second 25-point comeback win this season. Meanwhile, ESPN Stats and Info also noted that it was the sixth time in the last 20 seasons the Celtics have blown a 25-point lead and lost, twice as many as any other team during that span.

Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving left the game in the second quarter due to a right knee sprain.
