How many guys even have the courage to try this type of pass in an NBA game? Irving really does have eyes in the back of his head.
After the Celtics defeated the Toronto Raptors last week, Irving told Boston reporters that people still question whether he’s a good passer. The five-time All-Star entered Monday averaging 6.8 assists per game, which ranked 13th in the NBA.
The next time critics question Irving’s passing ability, they should just look at this highlight and move on because this is one of the best passes of the season.
Boston entered Monday on a three-game winning streak. They are playing some high-level basketball, with Irving leading the way. Irving is averaging 23.4 points per game on the season.
After getting off to a slow start to the 2018-19 campaign, the Celtics once again look like a championship contender.
