Tuesday’s clash of two East teams with high aspirations became a one-on-one duel between Kyrie Irving and Jimmy Butler. By the end of crunch time, only Irving was left standing, as the Celtics guard put the finishing touches on a dazzling performance: 40 points, 10 rebounds, three assists, 5-of-10 from deep. It was a masterpiece that included a game-tying, off-balance shot in regulation and the dagger 3 in overtime that sealed the 121-114 Boston win.
This Celtics season has been marked by inconsistency, a lack of offensive cohesion (Al Horford, Jaylen Brown, Marcus Smart, and Gordon Hayward combined to shoot 8-for-31 on Tuesday), and an emboldened Irving speaking publicly about what he perceives to be issues within the team.
