Irving scored 27 points (12-25 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding 11 assists, five rebounds and two steals in 34 minutes during Monday's 117-112 loss to the Hornets. It's Irving's second double-double of the season. both of which have come in the last three games, and his 10th time scoring 20 or more points in 16 contests. The point guard has also been a terror on the defensive end, grabbing multiple steals in seven straight to push his average up to a career-high 1.7 per game.
Irving managed 20 points (8-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-5 FT), eight rebounds, two steals, and one assist in 30 minutes during Saturday's 98-86 loss to the Jazz. After exploding for 43 points only 24 hours earlier, Irving and the Celtics were completely outplayed by a strong Jazz outfit. The entire starting lineup came out flat in this one and there is not really a lot to gauge from the performances of any of them. This game aside, Irving has been trending up in a hurry. He will get the night off before traveling to Charlotte to face Kemba Walker and the Hornets.
Irving scored 43 points (18-26 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-6 FT) while adding 11 assists, three steals, two rebounds and a block in 39 minutes during Friday's 123-116 overtime win over the Raptors. The point guard took over the game in the fourth quarter and overtime, scoring 11 straight points en route to 17 in the final 8:06 of regulation, before Irving factored into every basket the Celtics made in OT, either by assisting on it or draining it himself. He became the first Boston player since Antoine Walker in 2001 to score 40-plus points with 10-plus assists in a game, and he also cleared a couple of personal milestones with the performance, scoring his 10,000th point and dishing his 2,500th assist. The Celtics, and Irving, have had erratic starts to the campaign, but Friday's display should be an emphatic reminder that they are still one of the favorites to represent the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals.
Irving recorded 17 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven assists, six rebounds and two steals across 28 minutes in Wednesday's 111-82 win over the Bulls. Irving produced only his second game of the year in which he has shot under 10 field goals Wednesday night. Gameflow didn't call for Irving to go to work offensively, although he still contributed a nice point total due to his extremely efficient outing. Irving's numbers should only continue to rise as he plays better opponents.
Irving (personal) tallied 21 points (9-24 FG, 3-10 3Pt), six assists, two rebounds and five steals across 32 minutes in the Celtics' 100-94 loss to the Trail Blazers on Sunday. Although his shot was less than efficient, Irving remained aggressive enough to generate the second-highest scoring total on the night for the Celtics. The multi-time All-Star had missed Friday's loss to the Jazz due to the death of his grandfather, but he was able to post his fourth game with at least 20 points in the last five in his return. Irving also continued shining on defense, with Sunday's multi-steal effort marking his third such tally in the last four contests.
