Kyrie Irving on facing LeBron James in Celtics-Lakers rematch: 'It’s just another game'

Kyrie Irving on facing LeBron James in Celtics-Lakers rematch: 'It’s just another game' Los Angeles topped Boston 129-128 in February, but Kyrie Irving isn't willing to call Saturday's game "revenge."

Kyrie Irving voiced some complaints about the Celtics’ coaching after Boston lost 124-117 to the Charlotte Hornets on Saturday.

Walker scored 36 points and added 11 rebounds and nine assists in the win. He was 11 of 25 from the field, including 6-of-13 on threes. Asked how tough Walker is to stop when he’s playing like that, Irving said the Celtics should trap him more “like every other team does in the league.” He also said Walker torches them every time.

Marcus Smart is usually the guy who would defend Walker, but he was on the bench in foul trouble. The end result is Boston allowed Walker to score 18 in the fourth quarter and blew an 18-point lead.

Irving blaming the coaches after Boston blows another big lead is a bad look in what’s been a season full of them for the guard.
