“If we play the right way and stick to our game plan, we can play with anybody. It’s guys understanding that we have to play the right way and understanding that it’s about the team.”
Kyrie Irving, Boston Celtics PG. I love the things the Jersey native has to say about “our game.”
“It’s a beautiful game when it’s played the right way. It’s not going to look good every possession, but you’ve got to be able to move onto the next play. I understand that better than most.”
“The two things we can control are our attitude and our effort.”
“And we’re playing the right way. That’s the thing that makes me happy. I mean, it’s good that our record’s like this, but we’re playing the right way. And if we play the right way, we’re going to put ourselves in position to win the game.”
“Obviously Boston is much more talented than us and they have more weapons. But that’s why we as a group – we have to play the right way and execute our stuff and do everything almost 100 percent right to win these type of games.”
I feel so sorry for Gordon Hayward, the former Butler Bulldog.
Poor guy dislocated his ankle and fractured the tibia in his left foot last night, just about six minutes into the game against the Cavaliers.
Hayward plays the right way.
Get well soon Gordon.
Following his first pre-season game with the Boston Celtics:
“[Ball movement] was awesome, man. Beautiful to be a part of. It was beautiful to watch. Purposeful cuts, understanding what we were trying to do, offensively and defensively, which is executing at a high level.”
