Irving steps up as Celtics beat 76ers

(TSX / STATS) -- PHILADELPHIA -- The Boston Celtics are missing Gordon Hayward and two other key players. But when it mattered most Friday night, Kyrie Irving most certainly was not missing.

Irving scored seven of his 21 points in a game-ending 18-8 run as the short-handed Celtics beat the Philadelphia 76ers 102-92 for their first victory of the season.

Asked about his late surge, Irving fairly shrugged.
