Kyrie Irving, in a post-match interview, was asked about this thorny journey for the big three. Kyrie quote – “There is still a lot of work to be done. What we intended to be and what we still intend to be. But all these hiccups and uncontrollable things… In last year’s knockout, James [Harden] went out and then I was about to shoot when Giannis ran over and his foot got in the way?! ” and then he went on to talk about the problems this season. Kyrie may or may not hold Giannis directly responsible, but the truth is that Kyrie went for it and it’s a huge blow to the Nets’ chances.

Kyrie Irving, however, tries to give fans some hope saying – “I think that’s one of those things where real life takes precedence over games… And I’d say our time is coming and maybe not now. But I feel some things happened for a reason and it was for a greater purpose. ”
