Kyrie has really fallen off a cliff. I'm not sure he's a top 40 player anymore. He does a few cool drives each game and will go supernova a handful of times during the season, but overall he is a net negative. On a good team he'd be a microwave guy off the bench. He's Reggie Jackson with better endorsements.
I would have guessed starting to decline rather than "a cliff"...

Though interestingly DARKO thinks he's doing just fine and not declining at all.

Nets main problem is that outside of KD and Kyrie they are awful. KI-DARKO.pngCeltics:NetsStars.png

Did something happen to White? I just saw the 4th, looked at his minutes, and wondered if he got hurt?
They noticeably kept Brogdon in at the end over him. Guessing they wanted a little more size(same height, though Brogdon has 30 lbs on him) and ball handling since they usually have Smart in there

The Celtics are the best team in the NBA. I will be surprised if they don’t win at least four of these games
There are six NBA teams right now with winning road records. Milwaukee is 5-3, New Orleans is 6-5, Denver is 8-7, the Clippers are 6-5, and the Trail Blazers are 8-6.

The Celtics are 8-3.

The next three games are against teams who collectively are 32-5 on their home floors. Tonight against Toronto (9-2 at home) is the second night of a back to back. Wednesday against Phoenix (12-2 at home) is their third game in four nights and fourth in six. Saturday against Golden State (11-1 at home) is going to be a hyped finals rematch. Followed by a Monday-Tuesday back-to-back against the LA teams, one of which is beginning to play extremely well. 3-2 over that stretch would be amazing and 2-3 would be fine. This stretch is brutal.

One down, one win. We're on to Suncinatti

Two down, four to go. IDK how hot these teams are lately. The Celtics are 16 out of their last 18 hot, and have beaten pretty good teams like Memphis, NO, Toronto, Miami, BK, and Atlanta on the road. I won’t be surprised if they come back from the West Coast 3-1 or 4-0. They can avenge the three straight losses last season at Phoenix and LA when the team was dysfunctional
