Irving gets cheers and a win at MSG as Celtics beat Knicks

Anthony Davis Knicks
Knicks gamble future with Kristaps Porzingis trade ahead of 2019 free agency

05 February, 2019

Is it possible that Kyrie Irving, now a superstar point guard for the Boston Celtics, could take his talents to Madison Square Garden next season and join up with the New York Knicks? First, disgruntled New Orleans Pelicans big man Anthony Davis asked for a trade but would not consider re-signing if acquired by the Celtics, fearing Irving might not be with the franchise for the long haul, sources told ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

Marcus Morris added 18 points for the Celtics, who won for the eighth time in nine games and remain supportive of Irving.

His comments come in stark contrast to what he said before the season, making some wonder whether or not he will re-sign with the Celtics.

Irving, who grew up in nearby West Orange, NJ, is one of the Knicks' prime targets in free agency, a reality that's taken on new significance after the team created two maximum-salary slots by shipping out Tim Hardaway, Jr. and Courtney Lee in the Porzingis trade.

Malik Beasley scored a career-high 35 points, Nikola Jokic had 31 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists, and Denver almost held James Harden below 30 points in a blowout of visiting Houston.

A "We want Kyrie!".

Hassan Whiteside had 12 points and 16 rebounds for the Heat, who lost their second straight overall and have dropped four of the last six.

The Knicks' new players weren't available, so they started Dotson and Kadeem Allen as guards. "I don't owe anybody s-t". "That's what excited me a lot about the beginning of the season, was the opportunity to come into this season really just doing what we planned on doing".

Along with his "July 1st" comment, Irving also mentioned that he acknowledges the New York Knicks "positioning themselves for this summer and respects the organization", but that "obviously Boston's still at the head of that race", per Jay King of The Athletic. But of course, coming back home - obviously, what's going on in terms of that noise and commentary, it's just a bunch of nonsense right now.

Gordon Hayward had 14 points off the bench. "I am just constantly into how do I help these guys win the next play, how do I get them past the last play?" "I've just seen things over the years with Boston, and there's no loyalty".
