Kyrie mired in career worst 3-game playoff slump

May JohnsonMay 09, 2019

Ninety-six percent of teams in the history of the NBA Playoffs have successfully eliminated their opponent in a seven-game series when leading 3-1. Prepare the right way. The Boston Celtics are allowing 34.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 47.8 rebounds per game. "You know, seeing two or three bodies, sometimes four, still kicking out and trying to make the right plays, just continue to do so".

NBA players are judged by championships, MVP's and All-NBA teams.

"For me, the 22 shots?"

"Like I said, everything has checked out fine".

After shooting 7 for 22 in Game 4, three days after he shot 8 for 22 in Game 3, Irving proclaimed he should have recorded even more attempts, which seems like an interesting strategy in light of his shooting struggles. If Kyrie legitimately doesn't like playing basketball in Boston, then he shouldn't sign a contract to play for Boston and you shouldn't want him to. I try to utilize their aggression against them and still put my teammates in great position while still being aggressive.

Down 1-3 in their second-round playoff series, the Celtics are now on the brink of elimination, with more than just their postseason hopes on the line.

Dick Durbin: Trump 'Googly-Eyed ' By Putin's Denial of Venezuelan Involvement
Putin asked Trump to take 'steps to ease the sanctions pressure on North Korea , ' according to the embassy's readout. Trump said the two leaders were also considering a new nuclear agreement "where we make less and they make less".

It isn't the first game in the series that Milwaukee has leaned on its bench.

With Boston trailing top-seeded Milwaukee in the second round of an Eastern Conference playoff series, 3-1, Las Vegas believes Irving's future is not with the Celtics. It's nearly like Kyrie has his mind already on his new team and isn't focused on this series, as he's missing even the wide open looks from three and easy layups.

But the crowd was back on its feet, chanting "Let's Go Celtics!" midway through the third, when Horford made a pair of baskets around a 3-pointer by Tatum to cut the deficit to five, 91-86 with 7:19 to play. And, despite his own play, and that of his teammates, being not almost good enough through the past three games, he said he remains confident that the Celtics have what it takes to turn this series around. "He's close, and hopefully he'll be available sooner rather than later", Stevens said. That's where we stand.

Irving could bolt this summer, maybe to Brooklyn, maybe to the Knicks, or perhaps to either of Los Angeles' teams. "It's just slowing the (expletive) game down".

Irving was asked, as he walked off the court and down that hallway, what was going through his mind.
