Irving downplays hurt shoulder after Celtics' romp
Kyrie Irving finished Thursday night's 129-100 romp over the New York Knicks on the bench with an ice pack on his right shoulder, but he told reporters afterward he should be fine.
Irving, who had 22 points and eight assists, had ditched the ice pack when he spoke to reporters in the locker room.
"I saw the doctors afterward and they said AC joint or something going on there, but I'll be all right," said Irving.
The 26-year-old Irving said he hurt the shoulder making a pass to Marcus Smart with four minutes remaining.
He stayed in the game for about a minute before exiting.
The Celtics will try to extend their winning streak to five games when they face the Bulls in Chicago on Saturday night.
