Kyrie Irving is angry on a 105-103 loss against the Magic as he is disappointed on the lack of experience of the Celtics.
The Celtics was only down by two points with 2.9 seconds left where Irving was in the backcourt and Gordon Hayward inbounded to Jayson Tatum who shot a jumper that fell off the rim. After that play Kyrie started waving his hand in anger.
Apparently Kyrie didn’t agree with the last play and instead of putting the ball in the hands of Tatum he wanted the inbounds to go to Al Horford who will eventually set up a final play to Kyrie taking the last shot.
In an interview after the game Kyrie said their struggles can be attributed to — “Experience. It’s the best thing I can say is experience, We’re lacking it, and because of that, we have a lot of learning left to do. So we have a lot of ground to make up in that aspect…
I know from the majority of the fact that we’re better than most teams in this league, It’s just going out and proving it every single night and demanding it and actually showing it. It’s not easy to be great.”

Experience needs time and even if you stack your team with veterans it still requires time and experience of playing with each other. The good news is that the Celtics are stocked with a mixture of veteran and young talents.
The Celtics have now lost two in a row and stands at 25-17 records.
