Kyrie Irving (facial fracture) will travel with team, could play vs. Nets

15 Novembre 2017

Jaylen Brown is one of the best dunkers in the National Basketball Association, and the Boston Celtics forward showed why in the first quarter of Tuesday night's game against the Brooklyn Nets.

Irving had to play with a protective mask after suffering "a minor facial fracture" in the team's 90-87 win over the Hornets on Friday .

Joe Harris scored 19 points and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson had 16 points and nine rebounds for the Nets, who are without leading scorer D'Angelo Russell because of a bruised left knee.

Guard Victor Oladipo led the Pacers with 28 points on 11-of-17 shooting from the field.

In 2012, during his second season in the National Basketball Association, then-20-year old Irving broke a bone in his jaw and had to wear a black plastic mask against the Knicks.

Police said a man walked into the store and allegedly stole the poppy donation box from the counter before fleeing the scene. When officers arrived to investigate, it was learned that a poppy box had also been stolen from another nearby business.

Avery Bradley scored 24 points, Reggie Jackson had 17 points, rookie Luke Kennard scored a career-high 14 points, backup point guard Ish Smith scored 11 points and Andre Drummond added 17 rebounds for the Pistons.

The Boston Celtics keep on chugging along. The Celtics have won six straight in Brooklyn, where they were cheered loudly and Irving even heard "MVP!"

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said: "It's going to be pain tolerance, comfort with the mask".

Nets: Brooklyn plays just four home games in November.
