Kyrie Irving felt Jamal Murray disrespected the Boston Celtics at the end of his 48-point performance for the Denver Nuggets. Murray put up a last second shot trying to get to 50 at the excitement of the crowd despite the game being in hand.
Irving got angry and threw the game ball in frustration after the shot.
