Let’s give Kyrie Irving some credit here: He tried to slide over and make the play. Plenty of other players — elite NBA players — would have made the business decision not to get in the way of this one.
Irving did. It just didn’t end well when Miami’s James Johnson attacked the rim.
That’s not to say some Celtics didn’t block a Johnson shot on the night.
And that was not the best Boston blocked shot of the night.
Miami was in control of this one in the fourth quarter.
