Blame it on the mask. Blame it on Steph Curry’s dreads. For most of the game Kyrie Irving struggled with his shot and didn’t seem to realize he was playing against Steph Curry. Then in the 4th quarter, Irving, who ditched his mask in the second quarter, realized the guy with the dreads was Steph, channeled his 2016 Finals self and scored 11 of his 16 points to help lead his team to a 92-88 comeback victory.
Another big reason for the Celtics 17-point comeback and 14th win in a row was Jaylen Brown. The 2nd year standout dedicated his memorable performance to his child hood friend, who passed away earlier in the day.
“Ky gave me the game ball and said, `This one was for Trevin,” Brown said.
