Former Boston Celtics star Paul Pierce didn’t hold back in his assessment of Kyrie Irving’s performance in the NBA Finals, giving him a dismal grade on the disappointing scale.

During a segment on Undisputed, Pierce bluntly rated Irving’s play as a “10” in terms of disappointment, highlighting the stark contrast from his usual standards.

Irving has struggled to find his rhythm in the Finals, averaging just 14 points per game while shooting a mere 35.1% from the field and failing to connect on any of his eight three-point attempts.

The Mavericks, relying heavily on Irving’s production, find themselves in a precarious 0-2 hole in the series against the Boston Celtics.

Despite Irving’s underwhelming performance, there’s still hope for a turnaround as the series shifts to Dallas for Games 3 and 4.

The Mavericks will need Irving to rediscover his form if they hope to claw their way back into contention and turn the tide in the Finals.

As one of the team’s primary scorers and playmakers, Irving’s contributions are crucial to the Mavericks’ success in the championship series.
