BOSTON (AP) - Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving has a broken bone in his face and is doubtful for their next game.
Are the host Boston Celtics going to run their win streak to 12 games today when they play the Toronto Raptors at 3:30PM ET? "Everybody is picking up the slack". TV commentator Charles Barkley declared that night that "Their season's over". With Irving likely to miss some time, look for Rozier and Larkin to continue playing well in his place. The play was reviewed, the call stood and Toronto kept the ball.
Brown is used to tough defensive assignments, but is quick to mention DeRozan being an extremely challenging scorer to contain.
The Celtics are a real threat to win the East and get to the Finals because of how well they defend. Last year it was hard for me to just be out with the lights, out in the arena. "Have to love games like that". Only three weeks into the new season, Irving has already made his case to be one of the favourites for the MVP award.
"Guy just missed a shot". Tatum is the most prominent of the six rookies contributing to the team's remarkable early season success.
Guard Victor Oladipo led the Pacers with 28 points on 11-of-17 shooting from the field.
Neither playing that way or even playing as well as he did after the two games out didn't catch coach Brad Stevens unaware. "Certainly, we're (the staff's) not talking about it". Moving forward, the Celtics need to focus more of their effort on the offensive side of the floor in order for them to compete against high scoring offenses.
"I think this year it wasn't as severe as last year", the veteran said. Three-time All-Stars DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry have been one of the league's top 1-2 punches in recent years. ". He's done so much for us for so long, nothing that he does on the court surprises me".
Lou Williams led the Clippers 5-6 with 35 points and seven rebounds, but Blake Griffin mustered just 17 points on five of 19 shooting. Lowry also had seven assists and a steal.
Irving scored a then-career-high 41 points the last time he wore a mask in December 2012 while playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Boston keeps on rolling and the spreads are getting smaller.
DeRozan described the shot as a "great look" before adding, "I make that in my sleep". "I don't care, he's shooting". An offensive explosion followed in the third quarter, and when Horford and Brown hit back-to-back 3s, Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck from his baseline seat implored fans to get loud.
