Kyrie Irving tallied 29 points, five rebounds, 10 assists, four steals, four 3-pointers and a block in Wednesday's 103-111 loss to the Suns.
Phoenix was motivated after gifting Boston a win with a pathetic collapse earlier in the season but got the job done tonight. Irving was excellent and went 10-of-19 from the field, but the rest of his teammates couldn't carry their weight and the Celtics struggled to keep Phoenix off the glass, which led to 21 offensive rebounds and plenty of second-chance points for the Suns. It figures to be a major concern for Boston going forward now that Aron Baynes is hurt, and it might mean that Irving needs to score even more, much to the delight of fantasy owners.
