Kyrie Irving is getting closer to a return, and at some point he will face his former team.

Their chants had sparked a social media reaction from Irving, who said the taunts "just shows how Sports/Entertainment will always be ignorant and obtrusive".

The Slim Reaper, as we know, overcame the disdain sent his way and proved to be the most important player on a back-to-back championship-winning squad.

The Brooklyn Nets first visit to Boston was highly anticipated by fans around the league, as Kyrie Irving was slated to meet his old team for the first time.

The forward Jayson Tatum finished as leader of the Celtics by contributing 26 points and nine rebounds that did not prevent the defeat of his team that had reached the game with two consecutive wins.

All roads in and out of Casper were closed Saturday morning, including the entire 300-mile stretch of Interstate 25 in Wyoming. Duluth said its city staff would monitor Canal Park and other areas for potential flooding and close roadways if necessary.

Smart, who has been playing through a sprained left ring finger that he again aggravated during Friday's loss, was as frustrated with the injury and his own play (15 points on 4-for-13 shooting, including 1-for-6 from 3-point range) as he was with the Irving questions.

Boston coach Brad Stevens talked about the importance of a strong start with the early tip, but the Celtics couldn't deliver it. Kemba Walker - who scored 39 in Wednesday's win - connected on six of 19 shots from the field on the way to 17 points - and found himself the target of Nets fans who changed "Kyrie's better" when he stepped to the free-throw line. Stevens was asked about Irving's post, as well as the importance of mental health in the National Basketball Association.

"I like Kyrie, I appreciated Kyrie, wished him well and I think that him coming home has been something that he wanted to do and he was a free agent", Stevens said. We ain't got no hard feelings towards him.

The Nets debuted their uniforms in tribute to the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of the borough that was home to The Notorious B.I.G.
