Kyrie was fine tonight. Looks like he's still figuring out the celtics roster, but he made 5-7 threes. He only had 3 assists, but he also only played 25 minutes.
What I still don't see is the ability to truly make things happen when he's not scoring. He had an amazing crosscourt pass that landed right in Marcus Smart's hands and he drained the three. He had a great up the court pass to Horford in the third quarter and he didnt miss a shot. He looked fine on man-to-man defense as far as I could see, but he got lost on two screens and gave up a couple of threes as a result.
Overall, it's looked like Kyrie and the celtics are figuring things out, but once again, Kyrie doesn't look like an instinctive playmaker. We'll see, though. Hayward, Horford looked solid too. Horford looks the most solid all around, though.
