4 thoughts on Kyrie Irving’s baffling playoff performance

Kyrie Irving

Then when you go to the press conference and say, 'I should've taken 30 shots, ' what do you think the other 14 guys in the auto going home saying, 'We can't wait until this guy gets out of here. Prepare the right way.

Pierce, who starred for Boston, claimed that the Celtics had locked up the series following their Game 1 victory. "You know, seeing two, three bodies, sometimes four, still kicking out and trying to make the right plays".

Boston led by as many as 11 points before Connaughton made a long three at the first-quarter buzzer to make it 30-22.

"I missed shots", Irving said. See ya. After getting blitzed from beyond the three-point line the last two games, the Celtics chose to make it easy on the Bucks in Game 4.

Irving forced his way out of Cleveland and being dealt to Boston on August 22, 2017. "They do a great job of loading, too, so they're making the paint look crowded whenever I'm driving or wherever I'm going on the court". This is the first year in my time watching basketball that I don't blame anyone for declaring a series over with a game left. It's nearly like Kyrie has his mind already on his new team and isn't focused on this series, as he's missing even the wide open looks from three and easy layups. The Celtics are third at +350. The 66 points Milwaukee scored in the paint isn't just a staggering number-it's the most the Celtics have surrendered in a playoff game in the 23 years the National Basketball Association has been tracking it.

Instead, the Celtics allowed the Bucks to outscore them 22-13 over the final 8:18 of the third while Antetokounmpo watched from the bench with four fouls to all but put the game away. "It's just seemed like Milwaukee was a way better team throughout the regular season [.] If Giannis [Antetokounmpo] doesn't have a monster game and somebody else doesn't step up, Boston is just going to out talent them".

"Feeling good today", Smart said after taking part in Boston's practice. "He's close, and hopefully he'll be available sooner rather than later", Stevens said.

At the end of the day, Kyrie Irving wanted to prove that he could lead a team.

While most Irving rumors of late have centered around the New York Knicks, Richmond believes the Los Angeles Lakers still are in play to acquire the six-time All-Star, who's eligible to opt out of his contract and become a free agent in the offseason.

"It's exciting", Kyrie Irving said of the possibility of Smart returning.
