BOSTON (CBS) — The postseason didn’t end well for Kyrie Irving and the Celtics, but the dynamic guard had one of his best regular seasons of his career in 2018-19. On Thursday, he was named to the All-NBA Second Team.

Irving averaged 23.8 points while shooting 48.7 percent from the floor and 40 percent from three-point range, adding 6.9 assists and five rebounds over his 67 regular season games for Boston. He received 52 second-team votes and 39 third-team votes, finishing 10th in the overall All-NBA voting process.
