Kyrie Irving Scores 25 as Celtics Beat Nets for 13th Straight Win

"You just get blown out of the gym", Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.

Irving has been fitted for a protective mask, and it will be his second time playing with this kind of apparatus. "So that's that. Just wearing a mask for precautionary reasons". Golden State is next at 11-3, and Boston got good preparation for the game against a persistent Brooklyn team.

After Jayson Tatum extended Boston's lead to 95-90 with 1:26 remaining, Toronto pulled to within a point.

Boston then finally put it away with Jaylen Brown's alley-oop feed to Tatum before Irving hit two free throws to make it 106-96. "He'll find that and obviously he made huge plays late in the game again".

After the Boston Celtics finished off the Brooklyn Nets to earn their 13th straight win, Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving capped off his night by making a special delivery to a pair of members of the United States Armed Forces.

"Great", Celtics center Al Horford said of Irving's return.


While Irving scored 25 points for the third time as a Celtic, four others reached double figures.

Even though DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry combined to score almost half of the Raptors points, Al Horford, 21 points, led a balanced attack that featured five Celtics scoring in double figures.

An inability to contain Irving down the stretch sent the Nets to a seventh loss in nine games since beating Cleveland on October 25.

Joe Harris scored 19 points and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had 16 points and nine rebounds for the Nets. Allen Crabbe and Caris LeVert added 15 points apiece.

"I thought guys competed", Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said. At the morning shootaround, Boston G Kyrie Irving joked that C Aron Baynes did not need to apologize for the inadvertent elbow that led to the facial injury.

"You just want to keep this thing as pretty as possible but, hey, it's getting tougher and tougher the more aggressive I play", said Irving, who pointed out that he probably won't be able to yell as much as he'd like.
