The Celtics will host the Wizards on Christmas. Kyrie Irving, via NBC Sports Boston: The hoopla on Christmas, I don’t really get into that. I don’t really necessarily think of Christmas as a holiday. So, I’m just happy that I get to be with my family. Looking forward to playing in front of the fans on the 25th and just playing against a high-level Washington team and going against great guys in there. Then, of course, opening presents and that whole thing. Maybe Irving just means he’s not treating Christmas as a holiday, because he has to work.
