Kyrie Irving fined $25K for chucking ball into stands

Nearly 24 hours after Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving fired the ball into the stands following a 115-107 loss to Denver on Monday night, the source of Irving's frustration - a last-second 3-point attempt by Nuggets guard Jamal Murray, who was trying to reach 50 points - still had him steaming.

After Murray's missed attempt at 50, the ball landed near Irving, who took it and threw it into the crowd out of frustration.

For the most part, the competition was obviously featuring two of the NBA's heavyweights, but in the end, Jamal Murray simply was too much for the Celtics to overcome.

"The ball deserves to go in the crowd after a bull- move like that".

Murray obviously wanted to add a 50-point game to his National Basketball Association resume, but he said he meant no disrespect to the Celtics with the way he went about trying to accomplish the feat.

Former Cyclone point guard Monte Morris and the Denver Nuggets picked up a big win over the Boston Celtics on Monday night.

After Murray, Irving had the best game of anyone in that Celtics-Nuggets game, scoring a season-high 31 points on 13-17 shooting.

The Nuggets, while having no elite defenders that stand out, have managed to put together a lineup of players who do well on offense but excel on defense as well. They are 9-1 and they are just 0.5 games back of the Golden State Warriors.

"I know him personally". Denver has four players averaging 16-or-more points per game and six double-digit scorers in total. I just had it in my mind I was going for 50.

Murray said he wasn't trying to run up the score and he didn't mean any disrespect to the Celtics.

"Everybody knew I was trying to go for 50 at that point". My emotions just took over like it did with the Lakers previous year.

Utah played without Donovan Mitchell (sprained ankle) for the second time in three games.

Michael Malone is the current Denver Nuggets Head Coach.

"I can't say enough great things about him and all the things that he has meant to the Celtics, Celtic fans in and around New England and even in our house", Stevens said.
