National Basketball Association wrap: Kyrie Irving hot as Celtics top Raptors in OT

Inside the Green Room with Danny GreenMore

The fourth quarter saw Irving and Leonard - two of the NBA's biggest stars - duke it out in the fourth quarter. Still, James clearly was blown away by Irving's game Friday night and wanted to show love to the point guard who delivered the game-winning shot in Game 7 of the 2016 NBA Finals. OG Anunoby left Friday's game with a right wrist sprain and did not return. His fourth-quarter performance, along with a couple of timely Jayson Tatum baskets tied the game with just over 24 seconds on the clock.

Embiid had seven rebounds, three blocked shots and two steals despite playing just 26 minutes because of foul trouble and Simmons finished with 10 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.

While the loss of Green will be a tough pill to swallow, the Raptors are getting plenty of production from the rest of their lineup, making many believe that this may be the team to break out in the East.

Green however, has faded into darkness, as his minutes have taken a massive dip, going from the low 30s to the low 20s in the last five games, as he has failed to reach double figures scoring in each of them.

Serge Ibaka scored 21 and Pascal Siakam had 16 points and nine rebounds for the Raptors, who have lost three straight since opening the season with 12 victories in their first 13 games.

"Coming into the season we were all expecting that we would just kind of take over", Boston's Al Horford said after Wednesday's win, "and we're very risky".

Toronto regained a 107-103 lead with 1:29 remaining in regulation, but Tatum's dunk and Gordon Hayward's free throws pulled Boston level, while Leonard missed a potential game-winner at the buzzer. It also gave the Raptors their first three-game losing streak of the season.

The Jazz dug in to make it close, and the teams traded the lead six times in the fourth quarter. The teams, which have won 11 of the last 12 Atlantic Division championships, will play twice more.

With that said, the Bulls will have their hands full Saturday night at the United Center.

Irving surpassed the 10,000 point and the 2,500 assist milestones.

"To have a great Friday night game against Raptors is awesome".
