Kyrie Irving Celtics jersey now belongs to fellow US Olympian Aly Raisman

Fine. This was at least going to be the game where Irving, who came so close to getting his "revenge" when these teams first met in October, was going to get right back in LeBron's face and actually make the shot this time around.

"It doesn't", Lue said when asked if the widening gap between the C's and Cavaliers, at least in the standings, concerns him.

The "injury" he mentioned was the hip injury to his current teammate, Isaiah Thomas, who was Boston's star point guard last season.

"I mean, Brad (Stevens) does a great job", he said.

The Cavs posted one of their worst shooting performances in recent history against the Celtics on Wednesday. "They started off hot and playing really good basketball, and we started off slow and then now we've kind of found our rhythm, but the last few games have been different". Down the lane without much resistance, Horford rose up and dunked right over the Cavaliers' J.R. Smith.

After deciding to leave Cleveland and emerge from the shadows of LeBron James, Kyrie placed a certain amount of pressure on himself to perform without the league's best player by his side. Is Kyrie someone we might want to bring back and say, 'Hey, look, players have figured it out in the past.

"I think they were a threat previous year", James said, keeping his face stone straight to suggest a deeper meaning.

"So it's going to be a process, but I feel real confident in our talent and what we can do, and we're going to be special at the end, especially toward April". I like the work our guys have been putting in, trying to get better, trying to make it work. The Spurs were and remain in need of young talent on the team. But now it's really about the big picture.
