INDIANAPOLIS — Celtics head coach Brad Stevens talked about “ridiculous” Kyrie Irving and why closing out the Pacers in Game 4 will be Celtics toughest task.
STEVENS ON CLOSE OUT:
“I told these guys as soon as we got in the locker room that the hardest game of the series is the close-out game, especially on the road,” Irving said after Boston’s 104-96 victory, which propelled them to a 3-0 series lead. “Obviously, we know what’s at stake. We know the amount of pressure they’re putting on themselves and we know the amount of pressure we’re going to put on ourselves to play great. That’s just the reality of it. You’ve just got to be ready for the runs they throw at us, the intensity, make sure we’re picking up the basketball, being very aggressive. We’ve just got to match it. We’ve got to be able to answer those calls and we’ll be okay.”
