Game 7 learning experience; Why was Kyrie missing — CELTICS TALK PODCAST

01 June, 2018, 07:20 | Author: Rachael Silva
  • Cleveland Cavaliers forward Le Bron James and Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart

He sustained a broken fibula and dislocated ankle in the early minutes of the Celtics' season opener at Cleveland Oct. 17.

But after losing key men Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving - and important bench player Daniel Theiss - to season-ending injuries before the playoffs even began, there is no doubt the C's exceeded expectation during a hard year.

In 2014, the Spurs beat LeBron James and Miami in five games in the NBA Finals. And every year for the past decade, Boston, as well as every other squad in the Eastern Conference, has failed to get over that hump.

Irving's expected timetable put him back with the Celtics right around training camp, but to this point the Celtics have not offered any official timetable for Hayward.

Danny Ainge says Kyrie Irving missed Game 7 because he was recovering from surgery for a deviated septum.


Also on Wednesday, the Celtics said center Aron Baynes had successful surgery to fix a nasal fracture he sustained during Game 6 of the conference finals. "You can't think about what could have been, but when he's with our team we're at another level".

"We think this is the final step from a medical standpoint", the Celtics president said today.

In an interview on ESPN's show "Get Up", Tatum didn't hesitate to pick Golden State, although he wouldn't say how many games they would win it in. But listen, we need Marcus.

In his first season in Boston, the 26-year-old averaged 24.4 points, 5.1 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 60 games. Irving has not played since March because of a knee injury.

"Last year, we didn't know all that stuff was going to happen, but we do feel we have a bright future with this team", Horford said.
