After trailing by 16 points at the half, the Celtics had an opportunity to tie the game in the closing seconds of a competitive fourth quarter. Kyrie Irving ultimately missed the three-pointer in his old stomping grounds, as the Cavaliers held on for a 102-99 win. Following the game, Irving and his former teammates (LeBron James included) exhibited no hard feelings and even gave their old handshakes another go-around.

While he didn’t connect with Iman Shumpert on court, Irving caught the shooting guard on his way out. According to the Boston Globe‘s Gary Washburn, the pair also performed their customary handshake.
