Kyrie Irving on his final shot attempt: "Thought it was cash money. Thought it was going to hit the bottom of the net. Obviously I didn't put enough on it. Good play-call. Just happens. We're gonna replay it for like about 33 more minutes then I'll be over it."

Brad Stevens: "The two plays Manu [Ginobili] made at the end of the half and the end of the game were vintage Manu. I said before the game he's one of the best players at the end of quarters that I've ever seen. And now I wish I wouldn't have said it."

This is Kyrie Irving's 13th (and he says final) game in a protective mask. His stats over the first 12 games: 26.1 points per game on 53.7 percent shooting including 43 percent beyond the 3-point arc. Add in 4.6 assists per game. Boston is 10-2 during that stretch.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich joked that Tony Parker's fast return from quadriceps tendon surgery could be tied to this being a contract year. Parker is extension-eligible, and can be extended for up to four seasons starting at $18.5 million in 2018-19. His current deal expires in 2018. "He surprised us because he came back so early, much sooner than any of us would have expected," Popovich said. "If you were in the weight room, and watched his rehab, he was very dedicated. He was absolutely magnificent in that regard. He really wanted to come back quickly. It also might be a contract year, I'm not sure. Don't want to be cynical or anything. He's never wanted to be [Arnold] Schwarzenegger in the weight room. He's never been like that. But in this particular case, he just didn't want to be sitting out. And he was playing so well last year when he got hurt. He was playing wonderfully. He wanted to get back. So he worked hard at it."

Celtics rookie Jayson Tatum rejoined the team this afternoon in San Antonio and will start vs. the Spurs. Tatum, who traveled late due to personal reasons, was scheduled for an 8:30 a.m. flight but that got cancelled. He caught a later flight through Dallas. Asked if everything is OK back home, Tatum said, "Yeah, I'm good."
