NBA Playoffs 2019: Celtics vs. Pacers Game 1 live stream

Boston, MA- The NBA post-season is officially underway and the Boston Celtics got their first taste of what the playoffs are like in 2019 with Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward on the court on Sunday.

The series resumes Wednesday. "We just didn't make shots in that third quarter". "We were getting wide open looks and they were rattling in-and-out or they were just missed shots". But there was a gradual decrescendo, as the Celtics managed to tally just 6 points in the first six minutes of play. "Had some frustrations, fouls, miscues, but I feel in good shape about where we're at right now".

"We just had to turn that page", he said.

Boston's offense finally came alive in the third quarter when they played with some gosh darned PACE!

Everybody in the sport knows that a different Irving arrives when it comes to the playoff and he has proven it when he scored the game-winning bucket in Game 7 to clinch the Cavaliers' NBA title in 2016 when they came from 3-1 down against the Warriors.

The All-Star guard's first half didn't go as planned, scoring just seven points on 3-for-10 shooting with only two assists, but Irving didn't let that diminish his entire game. "We were really flying around".

The third period ended with Terry Rozier connecting on an acrobatic 3-pointer with 0.1 seconds remaining to put the Celtics ahead 64-53.

Stevens went with Jaylen Brown in the starting lineup in place of Marcus Smart, who is out with a torn left oblique.

The change paid off with Morris going 3 of 4 in the period, including two 3-pointers, and scoring 12 points.

Celtics: Outrebounded the Pacers 55-42. Over the past 35 years, teams that shot that poorly and committed that many turnovers had gone a combined 3-19 in playoff games before Sunday.

While his team was able to recover from a dismal start, Stevens said the Pacers' defense deserved credit for making things hard on them throughout the game.

IN struggled against the Celtics throughout the regular season, losing three of four - including their last two meetings in March. "But it's tough. Those guys are physical.We have a lot to get better at".

Irving continued on how he and his team can build on Game 1, whether it was a win or loss, "when you look back at it and see some of the mistakes and some of the things you can correct going forward I think that can really make a huge impact for the players in the locker room".
