Kyrie Irving gets 2nd career triple-double as Celtics overcome Kings

NBA roundup,Boston Celtics,Sacramento Kings

Irving's last triple-double came on February 28 of 2014 against the Utah Jazz. "It behooves us to give him the most amount of space possible", Sacramento head coach Dave Joerger said before the game.

The Sacramento Kings have had their bright spots this season, but they're now in a bit of a slump as they've lost seven of their last 10 games and they will be looking to bounce back after falling short against the Wizards in a 121-115 road loss on Monday.

The Kings are 1-3-1 against the spread in their last five games overall but are 11-3 at the betting window in their last 14 games coming off a loss. As a leader, I have to be better at making sure that we are prepared mentally to be ready to go. 31 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists.

One of the NBA's premier defenders, Smart's defense against Kings guards Buddy Hield and De'Aaron Fox would make quite an impact, as Fox boasts an athletic advantage against Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving (and plenty of other Celtics as well).

Meanwhile, the Boston Celtics are still searching for consistency as they've won just four of their last 10 games and they will be looking to bounce back after having their three-game win streak snapped by the Clippers in a 140-115 road loss on Monday.

"It's going to be a dogfight, no matter who you are playing against", Irving said. As a team, the Celtics shot 48 percent from the field and 14 of 36 from the 3-point line, but their defensive intensity just wasn't there from the start as the Clippers shot a sizzling 61 percent from the field.

Morris had a 21-point, 13-rebound double-double for Boston, which beat Sacramento at home for the 11th straight time dating to January 2007.

He played only 10 minutes in the first half but had 10 points to help the Kings build a 17-point lead.

The Celtics returned home on the mend following a 3-1 West Coast trip. They stayed close thanks in large part to Irving's 19 first-half points.Boston was much more energetic in the third quarter, opening on a 9-2 run to take its first lead since early in the first quarter.

Boston led 93-91 after three quarters. Barnes led Sacramento with 11 points in the quarter.
