Mike Petraglia and Josue Pavon break it down in this edition of the Garden Report.
INSIDE THE CELTICS LOCKER ROOM:
Re: How Kyrie Irving looked physically
“He didn’t say anything to me, but you could ask him that. I thought he looked fine. Just one of those nights, you know? We all expect him to put on the cape every night and it’s pretty impressive that on a night where he struggles, in the last six minutes of the game he can do what he did and make the shots he made.”

Re: Playing with Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier tonight was it similar the playoffs last year
“A lot of guys played well tonight hopefully we can keep that up and it translates to winning. We have a lot of areas on the defensive end we gave up a lot of points in the second quarter.”

Did it surprise you how quickly the Lakers came back in the third quarter?
“Nothing surprises me in this league especially with these two organizations battling with all the hype. Obviously you have to tip your hat to them [The Lakers] for fighting back and we have to do a better job keeping the same intensity we have to go up. We have to have it the whole game.”

What was it like seeing Rondo’s shot go in and seeing the postgame considering you’re in Boston?
“You know man, I think for Rondo he couldn’t even dream of that moment. To be back here in the Garden where he won a championship. Obviously, has so many memories of being here. For him to get his hands on the ball at that moment and be able to knock that down, it was a story book ending.”
Re: Lebron (James) said it was only right for you to hit that shot
“It’s surreal. It’s unbelievable. Obviously, the man upstairs give him all the credit. I work on my craft but at the end of the day, I couldn’t have did it without him.”
