In the doldrums of winter, we took scores of reactionary callers –– pardon the redundancy –– who proclaimed they would rather see Terry Rozier or Marcus Smart start at point guard for the Celtics instead of Kyrie Irving. It’s safe to say most of those folks probably feel differently following...

Jayson Tatum may have hit the decisive three-pointer and thrown down on Bojan Bogdanovic in the final minute of the fourth quarter, but there’s no question the Celtics walked out of Game 2 with a win because of Kyrie Irving. From start to finish, he was on another level offensively. In the first...
