Irving's 27 points, 18 assists leads Celtics past Raptors

BOSTON (AP) Kyrie Irving said he regretted criticizing his younger teammates, then he made a call to a former teammate he also owed an apology.

The Celtics point guard said on Wednesday that he called LeBron James over the weekend to apologize for failing to understand the burden the four-time NBA MVP carried when they played together on the Cleveland Cavaliers.

"I had to call Bron, and tell him I apologize for being that young player that wanted everything at his fingertips," Irving said after the Celtics beat the Toronto Raptors 118-107 on Wednesday night. "I wanted to be the guy that led us to a championship. I wanted to be the leader. I wanted to be all that."
