Kyrie Irving shouldered the scoring load in Thursday’s loss, finishing 12-of-27 from the floor and 6-of-15 from three en route to 32 points against the Knicks.
Irving had to try and shoot the Celtics back into this one after a sluggish start and his efficiency suffered as a result. The rest of his line wasn’t anything to write home about, but the six triples were a nice consolation prize on a night where Uncle Drew wasn’t at his best. He’ll be better in the next one and has an outside shot at producing top-10 numbers this year.
