Kyrie Irving appeared to question Brad Stevens’ coaching strategy after Kemba Walker scored 18 of his game-high 36 points in the fourth quarter to rally Charlotte to a 124-117 victory over the Celtics. The Hornets closed Saturday night’s home game on a 30-5 run that included all 18 of Walker’s fourth-quarter points. The Hornets trailed 112-94 with 8 minutes, 22 seconds remaining.

Asked afterward how hard it is to stop Walker when he’s playing so well, Irving said, “It’s one-on-one, pride.” “Down the stretch, try to come in and help as much as possible. We should have probably trapped him a little bit more, like every team does in the league,” Irving said. “But we didn’t. Torches us every time we play him. So it’s no surprise.”
