Last night, the Warriors and Celtics engaged in one of the best games of the season thus far. The two-time defending champion Warriors prevailed 115-111.
Kevin Durant led the way with 33 points and 9 rebounds.
The reason Boston was even in position late was because of none other than Kyrie Irving. He finished the game with 32 points, 10 dimes, and six rebounds.
However, Irving had three critical turnovers in the weighing moments.
After the game, he had a very interesting quote.
Kyrie on GS final stretch: “They had poise but they also got pretty lucky, too.”

Steph Curry caught wind of Irving’s statement and had this to say:
