Spurs’ wing Marco Belinelli swiped at a loose ball and caught Irving in the eye, sending the guard to the floor midway through Monday’s fourth quarter. Irving would ultimately return and said after the game that he would be alright.
Brad Stevens said during his postgame press conference that Irving suffered a scratched eye and would be given antibiotics as part of his treatment.
