Green-on-green quarterfinals: Irving vs. Crowder

New, comment

Kyrie Irving and Jae Crowder face off in the weirdest Celtics one-on-one matchup possible.

NBA: Playoffs-Boston Celtics at Cleveland Cavaliers Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Jae Crowder and Kyrie Irving are against each other in the quarterfinals of the Celtics one-on-one tournament. How that happened, I’m not sure. We had to include Crowder in his matchup against Aron Baynes to keep things fair, and you all voted him through, so here we are.

Crowder has the size advantage and defensive ability to give Irving more trouble than most, but there might not be a player in this tournament that can check Uncle Drew in the half court by himself. So will Crowder move on to the semifinals against his soon-to-be former teammates or will Irving start his Celtic career with a bang? The winner of this matchup faces the winner of Jayson Tatum vs Al Horford.
