NEW YORK (AP) – Kyrie Irv­ing re­ally dis­likes hav­ing to play in a mask.

On the other hand, he loves what comes next: Bos­ton putting its 13-game win­ning streak on the line against the NBA cham­pi­ons.

“It’s def­i­nitely an in­cred­i­ble streak we’re on, and now comes the whole me­dia frenzy of will the streak end, and what’s go­ing to hap­pen on Thurs­day and the Golden State War­riors com­ing to Bos­ton,” Irv­ing said. “So I’m look­ing for­ward to all that hoopla.”

Irv­ing re­turned to the lineup and scored 25 points while wear­ing the mask, and the Celtics beat the Brook­lyn Nets 109-102 on Tues­day night to re­main un­beaten since an 0-2 start.

Mar­cus Morris added 21 points and 10 re­bounds, and Jayson Ta­tum scored 19 points for the Celtics, who have the NBA’s best record. Golden State is next at 11-3, and Bos­ton got good prepa­ra­tion for the game against a per­sis­tent Brook­lyn team.

“The way that they con­verted on us in tran­si­tion af­ter our mis­takes tonight, you can’t have that against Golden State. You just get blown out of the gym,” Celtics coach Brad Stevens said. “We just have to play re­ally solid on both ends and do what we do as well as we can and see where we stand.”

Irv­ing missed one game with a mi­nor fa­cial frac­ture af­ter he was hit by team­mate Aron Baynes on Fri­day. He fid­dled with the mask fre­quently, but it didn’t seem to af­fect his play much.
