The Boston Celtics finally appear to have turned a corner, and their star point guard is leading the surge.
Kyrie Irving was dominant Saturday night at Staples Center, racking up 30 points in his team’s 120-107 win over the Los Angeles Lakers. The win improved Boston to 3-0 on its current four-game West Coast road trip.
After the game, Celtics forward Marcus Morris credited Irving for his role in the turnaround.
Here’s what Morris had to say, via The Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn:
(Warning: The tweet contains some NSFW language.)
Say what you want about Irving and the things he says, but you can’t deny his ability on the court. When he’s at his best, the Celtics are among the NBA’s elite teams.
Boston will finish its road trip Monday night when it takes on the Los Angeles Clippers.
