Kyrie: "Who cares?"

Kyrie-Irving

As the final seconds of Game 4 between the Celtics and the Bucks counted down, Kyrie Irving stormed out well before his teammates into the hallway in a bad mood. You could understand why he was mad.

After starting the series great, scoring 26 points in a road win, while looking great as a team, the Celtics completely fell off in the next 3 games and are a now in a 3-1 hole, out of which they probably won't climb out.

The biggest reason of Boston’s fall has definitely been the slump their star guard Kyrie Irving has been in those 3 games, going a combined 19 for 62 from the floor.

After losing Game 4, in which he scored 23 points on a poor 7 for 22 from the field, Kyrie seemed to be pretty disappointed:

"I missed shots," Irving said. "Shots just didn't go in. You go out and prepare as I said. Sometimes they go in, sometimes they don't.

"They do a great job of loading, too. They're making the paint look crowded whenever I'm driving or wherever I'm going on the court, seeing two or three bodies, sometimes four.

"Now it's time to get ready for Game 5."

He also reflected on his shooting struggles through the last 3 games and seemed to get pretty irritated:

“Who cares? I’m a basketball player. Prepare the right way. ... The expectations on me are going to be sky high ... for me, the 22 shots? I should’ve shot 30.“

Although Kyrie has been struggling you can’t put the whole blame on him because his teammates didn’t offer him much support, as it seems if Boston wants to have a chance to get back in this series Kyrie maybe will have to take 30 shots and put his team on his back. We can only wait and see.
