So it’s probably an AC joint or something like that. I’m not diagnosing myself, I’m pretty sure. I saw the doctors afterward and they said AC joint or something going on there, but I’ll be alright.”Irving had a strong night as he scored a team-high 22 points on 9-of-15 shooting and went 3-for-6 from 3-point range. He added eight assists and four rebounds over 30 minutes. The Celtics fell 117-109 to the Knicks on Nov. 21, and Irving said after the game he was pleased with how Boston played this time around. “I think I said it at the last media session we had at practice [on Wednesday], just a lot different identity,” Irving said. “For us, just having a lot more fun, making sure we are paying attention to detail and making sure that we’re playing at a level that we all demand out of each other.”Boston has won four straight and the team holds a 14-10 record. The Celtics have a day off before facing the Bulls (5-20) on Saturday.
