Kyrie Irving fined $25K for throwing ball into stands

Kyrie Irving fined $25K for throwing ball into stands”

The NBA announced on Tuesday Kyrie Irving has been fined $25,000 for throwing the ball into the stands after the Celtics' loss to the Nuggets on Monday night. Naturally, the Celtics star launched the ball into the crowd where Murray would never have the chance to recover it and commemorate his incredible night. "But congratulations to him on 48 points".

"What kind of competitor wouldn't it bother?" he snapped.

Speaking about it afterward, Irving was still heated about Murray going for 50 when the game was already out of reach. "So, I threw it in the crowd". He did it in a great fashion against us. Our defence has to be better, especially against a player like that. "I was (mad), but we're not going to make a big thing about it", said Kyrie Irving, who scored 31 points on 13-of-17 shooting.

Still irked following the game, Irving explained his actions. He made us pay in certain instances, making some tough shots and some tough layups.

"I really wasn't meaning no disrespect". His mind was simply set on going for 50 points.

Murray was on fire shooting 19-for-30 from the field, tying Steve Nash's 48 in the 2005 playoffs against the Dallas Mavericks for the highest scoring output by a Canadian in the National Basketball Association.

"I think my emotions took over, as it normally does". But while Murray was in Irving's cross hairs, the Boston guard was probably more frustrated with his team's effort on Monday night. The teams play again on March 18 in Boston.
