The Boston Celtics have won 11 games in a row, but they considered their streak Friday night without the services of Kyrie Irving.
During the first quarter of the C’s 90-87 comeback win against the Charlotte Hornets, the Celtics star point guard took a wayward elbow from center Aron Baynes and went down in a heap.
Baynes’ blow caused Irving to stay on the floor for a few minutes before being taken to the locker room while bleeding heavily from the nose/mouth.
The Celtics announced that Irving would miss the rest of the game to be treated for concussion symptoms.
Boston’s offense predictably struggled without Irving on the floor, and can ill-afford to lose him for an extended period of time.
