Irving, who criticized Celtics fans and what he called “Sensitive racism” as the series moved back to Boston, referring to the incident at his post-game press conference.
“People feel so privileged here,” Irving said. “They paid great tickets, I am grateful that they came to see a great show. But we are not at the theater. We weren’t throwing too many tomatoes and other random objects at the person who was performing, and it was a reflection of us as a whole. ”
Netizens actor Kevin Durant responded similarly.
“We are not animals. We’re not in the circus, ”Durant said.“ You come to the game, it doesn’t mean you’re a fan. So, respect the game, respect these human beings, and respect yourself. Your mother probably wasn’t proud that you threw a water bottle at a basketball player. “
Although the Celtics forward, Jayson Tatum said there were “some bad seeds”, he said, it should not discredit the rest of the team.

“In every arena, there are a few bad seeds,” Tatum said. “I don’t want that to obscure the rest of the fans who come and support us tonight. I am very happy to see that. But apparently there is nowhere in the NBA to throw a bottle or to throw anything. ”
