Celtics' Kyrie Irving slams Jamal Murray for last-second shot attempt

Game Preview Nuggets Look to Extend Winning Streak Against Celtics

Game Preview Nuggets Look to Extend Winning Streak Against Celtics

After Murray's missed attempt at 50, the ball landed near Irving, who took it and threw it into the crowd out of frustration. Irving said. "I understand if we fouled him, going to the free throw line".

"What kind of competitor wouldn't it bother?" he snapped. "I don't want to make a big deal out of it". And that move, with the game clearly out of hand, angered Kyrie Irving so much that he took the basketball and chucked it into the crowd.

"Congratulations to him on scoring 48 points". He did it in a great fashion against us. "Our defense has to be better, especially against a player like that in the pick and roll". He made us pay in certain instances, making some tough shots and some tough layups. I really didn't mean no disrespect. "I think my emotion took over, as it normally does when I get going like that", Murray said, via NBC Sports Boston.

Not the first time Murray has upset his opponent at the end of game.

Irving was congratulatory after the game on Murray's accomplishment but wasn't a fan of the late jumper to attempt to hit 50.

These two teams won't square off again until March 18, but it's unlikely that the Celtics will forget about what Murray did, so that matchup at TD Garden figures to be must-see TV. The C's continued to play sluggish out of the break, allowing 34 Denver points in the third quarter. Despite the 15-point deficit, Murray had torched the Celtics for 14 of the Nuggets' 19 points shooting 6-for-7 from the field and 2-for-3 from deep in the first frame.
