Plucky 13: Kyrie overcomes mask, Nets to help keep win streak alive

9:34 PM ET

Kyrie Irving, wearing a protective mask, drops 25 points and dishes out five assists to lead the Celtics to a 109-102 victory over the Nets in Brooklyn.

NEW YORK — The fans at the Barclays Center, most of whom were sporting green jerseys and T-shirts, had already serenaded Kyrie Irving with an MVP chant during fourth-quarter free throws. But the loudest cheers for the visiting squad were reserved for a sequence in the final minute when Jaylen Brown zipped an alley-oop lob to Jayson Tatum for an emphatic slam.

Irving overcame frustration with his new protective mask to score a game-high 25 points, while Brown and Tatum paired up for 32 points as the Celtics won their 13th straight game 109-102 over the Nets.
