Kyrie Irving upset with Gordon Hayward after Celtics-Magic final play

Kyrie Irving upset with Gordon Hayward after Celtics-Magic final play

It appears the final seconds of the Boston Celtics' game against the Orlando Magic on Saturday didn't go how Kyrie Irving planned.

With the Celtics trailing by two points and 2.9 seconds on the clock, Gordon Hayward inbounded the ball to Jayson Tatum, who missed a fadeaway jumper from the right corner to seal Boston's 105-103 loss.

Following Tatum's miss, Irving looked visibly frustrated with Hayward, exchanging words with the veteran forward after the buzzer. Irving's body language suggested Hayward made the wrong inbound pass, and that what Hayward executed wasn't what the Celtics drew up in the huddle in the preceding timeout.

Check out the full sequence in the video above.

The result was Boston's second straight loss, as the C's leave Florida without a win after Thursday's defeat in Miami against the Heat.

Celtics center Enes Kanter posts video enjoying his first Patriots game

Celtics center Enes Kanter posts video enjoying his first Patriots game

The New England Patriots won their third game of the 2019 season by a score of 30-14 over the New York Jets. And for one Boston-based athlete, it was a special day.

That would be Boston Celtics center Enes Kanter. The newly-signed big-man had never been to a Patriots game until Sunday and he took some time to post some video from Gilette Stadium on his Twitter account.

It's nice to see that Kanter is supporting his fellow New England athletes just a couple of months after signing with the Celtics to provide depth at the center position. It certainly sounds like Kanter was excited about the game and he had a great view as well.

It's safe to assume that some of the Patriots will return the favor to Kanter at some point during the NBA season, as members of the Patriots frequently show up at Celtics games.

Hopefully, by then, Kanter will be playing a big role for the team as the Celtics look for big-man production in the wake of losing Al Horford, Aron Baynes, and Marcus Morris during the 2019 offseason.

Enes Kanter shows big support for 7-foot-7 Tacko Fall in latest tweet

Enes Kanter shows big support for 7-foot-7 Tacko Fall in latest tweet

Enes Kanter seems to be a fan of Boston Celtics' 7-foot-7 rookie Tacko Fall.

Kanter posted a video to Twitter of Fall practicing at Auerbach Center, and he took time to praise Fall's efforts on Twitter.

The Celtics' signed Kanter to a two-year $10 million deal back in July, while Fall entered Boston's system as an undrafted free agent but he impressed in the Las Vegas Summer League. Kanter is the replacement for Al Horford, who left the Celtics over the summer for the Philadelphia 76ers.

The two should be a great duo for the Celtics, as both have the height and skill to be something special this coming season.
