Kyrie, elite Celtics offense carry hosts to win: Kyrie Irving (30 points, 11 assists) led eight different Celtics in double figures as Boston closed out Paul George (37 points) and the Oklahoma City Thunder with a 134-129 victory at the Garden in a thrilling matinee. Boston shot a season-high 59.3 percent from the field and dished out 36 assists in the victory, while Irving posted his fourth straight double-double in the midst of Boston's fourth straight win overall. Daniel Theis also filled in for an injured Aron Baynes (bruised foot) admirably off the bench with 14 points on 5-of-6 shooting as seven different Celtics scored between 10 and 19 points in the win.
