"I think it would have been great individually if you were going for yours (numbers)". They still sit in the fifth seed of the Eastern Conference, but a win against the Dubs could give them some type of momentum heading into the postseason.
The Celtics are playing some uninspired basketball at the moment.
As for what's been troubling him, Irving said, "I get exhausted of this stuff, just like everybody else. I had to pick my family up and make a transition, and I'm doing the best I can with the group I'm afforded because they're really good guys and they've shown we're capable of winning at a very high level". The team looks out of sync on the floor and players have even gotten into spats with each other on the court. "Very unhappy", Irving said of the media bombardment.

Michael Jackson's estate posts live concert footage during 'Leaving Neverland' TV premiere

While Kyrie Irving and LeBron James share a championship and countless memories of playoff basketball, they are also brothers in captaining teams two of the league's most storied franchises during disappointing seasons.
That's according to The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor, who believes the Celtics need to try and re-sign Irving whatever the cost. He's clearly not happy with his situation and as a team they're not playing well with him at the point. And I just try to not let it seep into my teammates, and that's the most important thing is setting an example for these young guys. He addressed the team's struggles and his propensity to get a little bit short with reporters on Tuesday. He explained how hard having cameras in his face all season has been (which, fair enough), and he stressed the importance of being a leader over the upcoming stretch as the Celtics try to finish the season strong. If Irving decides to leave, that young mix will likely be sticking around.
I just try to come out and play hard and hopefully that sparks some. Their current four-game West Coast trip could offer them a good opportunity to come together as a team, a chance to put the last 64 games behind them and focus on the road ahead. While the Celtics have experienced some success with Irving out of the picture, he's capable of taking the team to the next level.
