Avery Bradley gives up a 40-point game, insists he never gives up 40-point games

Jared Wickerham

Avery Bradley is confused.

Avery Bradley wasn't the only member of the Celtics responsible for Kyrie Irving's 40-point game Tuesday night; Rajon Rondo and others checked him at times, and Boston's team pick-and-roll as a whole really faltered. Bradley definitely spent a lot of time chasing Irving in vain, though, which makes a tweet like this one -- since deleted, but preserved by Holly MacKenzie -- a little puzzling:

Bradley deleted that tweet, then deleted a similar tweet posted soon afterward, perhaps because followers were blowing up his mentions.

But yeah, Bradley wasn't solely responsible for Irving's huge night, but ... Irving definitely scored 40 and definitely did so on fewer than 40 attempts. Bradley seems to be either amnesic, in denial, or just ... confident. Yeah, we'll go with that one.
