Kyrie Irving frustrated by Celtics failure to do'the little things

Before the Boston Celtics played the Houston Rockets on Thursday, Celtics star point guard Kyrie Irving gave a homeless man in Houston over $240 in cash.

Harden's 388 total points during this stretch are the most by any player over 10 consecutive games since Kobe Bryant had 396 for the Los Angeles Lakers from March 22-April 8, 2007. That has now been confirmed and he will be in Houston's starting five. He's scored 30 or more points in seven straight games.

The six-time All-Star and reigning MVP lit up Boston for 45 points and nine 3-pointers at the Toyota Center.

Jusuf Nurkic had 27 points and 12 rebounds for the Blazers. They took a 127-101 beating from the Lakers on Christmas night.

Irving is making $20 million this season. Jimmy Butler was also effective on the perimeter and drives for dunks as he scored 19 points.

Giannis Antetokounmpo helped the Milwaukee Bucks see off the New York Knicks, with 31 points and 14 rebounds in a 112-96 victory.

The Bucks swept the home-and-home series, having won at NY 109-95 on Christmas. Morris was called for his second technical foul with 4:38 left in the fourth after arguing an offensive foul. Antetokounmpo drove to the basket and was knocked down by Kanter, although no foul was called. Each player was called for a technical, then Kanter was called for a second.
