I get the sense that, just, the fact that when we’re in games, we feel we can win. I don’t know if it’s keeping it close or what, but when we play the way we’re capable of playing, we feel we can win the game no matter who we’re playing. […] That’s the ultimate confidence, when you have a guy [like Kyrie Irving] who can deliver in the crunch like he did [against Boston] , it not only gives him more confidence, but his teammates confidence as well. Every team needs one: you have to have a closer, you have to have somebody who can close the deal. The players out there feel pretty good when the ball is in his hands.
