DALLAS — Sinisi ni Kyrie Irving ang sarili sa 0-2 pagkakabaon ng Mavericks sa kanilang NBA championship series ng Boston Celtics.

“It started with me just telling my hermano I got to play better for him, alongside him,” wika ni Irving kay Luka Doncic sa kanilang practice kahapon sa American Airlines Center. “In order for us to accomplish our goal, we both have to be playing well and we both have to be doing the little things, doing whatever it takes to win.”

Inaaasahan ang pagbangon ng Dallas mula sa nasabing pagkakaiwan sa Boston sa krusyal na Game Three ngayon.

“Easy conversation. But it started with me reaching out, just letting him know it’s my fault, taking accoun­tability for not playing particularly well,” dagdag ng star guard.

Naglista lamang si Irving ng average na 14.0 points mula sa masamang 35.1% field goal shooting sa dalawang sunod na kabiguan ng Mavericks sa Celtics sa NBA Finals.

Nauna na siyang humataw ng 22.8 points per game buhat sa 48.5% field goal shooting sa playoffs tampok ang tatlong 30-plus-point performan­ces sa mga panalo ng Dallas sa Western Conference finals kontra sa Minnesota Timberwolves.

“It’s not about shutting him down,” ani Boston coach Mazzulla kay Irving. “It’s just about making it difficult for him because of his ability to impact plays, so we just have to fight for that. He’s gotten some good looks. I think we have to guard him better. I think he’s definitely going to be more aggressive.”
