Kyrie puts on a show: The All-Star has been working his way back into elite form after returning from a quad injury in early February. He managed to find that level in Madison Square Garden by playing arguably his best all-around game as a Celtic. He posted 31 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists, including 11 points over a 90-second stretch of the third quarter. The 25-year-old also tied his season-high in 3-point makes (six) and rebounds on a night the visitors desperately needed a spark on the second half of a back-to-back.
