Here’s what everyone was saying:
Q: HOW TOUGH WAS THAT ONE FOR YOU TONIGHT?
Irving: “It was tough.”
After losing five out of six since the all-star break, may he shake things up?
“You know, obviously, I think…we’ll – we’ll look at everything – we’ve been looking at everything after every game. Every night when you go to bed, every minute when you wake up, you’re always thinking about that. There’s things that, that are helpful in that, and things that are not helpful. And if it’s the root of your issues then I think the – then a small tweak can help.

I’m not sure that that’s our root. That said, we still are evaluating tweaks regardless. So we have to just – we just have to keep working to all play better, rather than when we play. And we’ve all had moments throughout the course of the year when we’ve played well, and Danny (Ainge) has said this on a number of occasions: When we have six or seven guys playing well, we’re pretty good. And we’ve just got to get back to that.”
How tough was that one?
“It was tough, really good team; really get a lot of threes. They’re a tough team. Every time we play them it is always a big challenge.”
Re: Stretching the lead early on
“That is what its about. We came off to a really good start and the last few games we have been doing an unbelievable job in the second half defensively but our first half’s we allowed too many points. So tonight, was a conscious effort to come out and have a really good start on both ends of the floor for four quarters.”
