The Boston Celtics have faced off against the Brooklyn Nets in the NBA postseason twice in as many years, and it sounds as if All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving is looking forward to another match-up. In a conversation with Kai Cenat and others, Irving shared some of his thoughts on the first-round exit his Brooklyn Nets faced in the 2022 postseason at the hands of the Boston Celtics. It was a clean sweep for the Celts, and Irving expects to see his former team down the line.
“It was meant to happen like that, motivation bro,” Irving said via a clip posted by Nets Kingdom. “We needed that humbling experience, especially going against the Celtics. It was already built to be that matchup. We gonna see them again. We gonna have to.”
Irving seems to be referencing the playoffs. All the same, the first tilt between the budding rivals is on Dec. 4th in Brooklyn.
