The fan was accompanied out of the field by Boston police, and was captured "for tossing an item,'' as per the assertion.
The container barely missed Irving, who was strolling toward the passage after his 39-point execution helped give Brooklyn a 3-1 arrangement lead over the Celtics.
"You can see that individuals simply feel exceptionally entitled around here," Irving said about the occurrence. "They paid for their tickets - extraordinary, I'm appreciative that they're coming in to watch an incredible exhibition. In any case, we're not at the theater. We're not tossing tomatoes and other irregular stuff at individuals that are performing."
As per Boston Police, an observer says the suspect - 21-year-old Cole Buckley of Braintree, Massachusetts - tossed a Dasani water bottle at Irving. Buckley is accused of threatening behavior through a risky weapon and will be summoned Tuesday in Boston Civil Court.
"We will uphold and give help to Boston Police as this episode is under survey," a TD Nursery representative said in an explanation. "We have zero capacity to bear infringement of our visitor implicit rules, and the visitor is dependent upon a lifetime restriction from TD Nursery."

At the point when the jug was tossed Sunday night, Irving and his partner Tyler Johnson promptly paused and turned upward into the stands. Irving declined to give points of interest on the to and fro.
"You're seeing a ton of old ways come up," Irving said. "It has been that route in history as far as diversion, entertainers and sports for a significant stretch of time and simply basic bigotry and simply dealing with individuals like they're in a human zoo. Tossing stuff at individuals, talking. There is a specific point where it will be excessively."
This weekend denoted the first run through Irving has played in TD Nursery with fans since he endorsed with Brooklyn as a free specialist in 2019. Before the Nets headed out to Boston, Irving - who played for the Celtics for two seasons - was asked how he figured he would be gotten by the fans in TD Nursery. Irving said he trusted the fans would "simply keep it rigorously ball. There's no hawkishness or any prejudice going on; inconspicuous bigotry."
Celtics leader of ball activities Danny Ainge said in a radio meeting on Thursday that he had never heard any players say they had managed prejudice as an individual from the Celtics previously.
"I feel that we treat those sort of things appropriately," Ainge said on 98.5 The Games Center. "I never heard any of that, from any player that I've at any point played with in my 26 years in Boston. I never heard that from Kyrie, and I conversed with him a considerable amount. In this way, I don't have the foggiest idea. Taking everything into account, it doesn't make any difference. We're simply playing ball. Players can say what they need."
Sunday's jug tossing was not the primary episode among players and fans in Boston. Two years prior, a TD Nursery fan was allowed a two-year boycott for hollering a racial slur at Top pick place DeMarcus Cousins - at that point with the Brilliant State Heroes - in a game on Jan. 26, 2019.
"Over the span of this examination, we had the option to reason that the fan had been loudly oppressive toward the Brilliant State seat, yet none of the talked with parties had the option to confirm the utilization of racially hostile language, and video proof demonstrated uncertain," the Celtics said in an explanation at the time about the fan, who was a minor.
The Celtics said that dependent on their examination, the fan would be restricted for a very long time. Current Nets star Kevin Durant was in that Heroes group with Cousins, while Irving was at the time still an individual from the Celtics.
"Fans had the chance to grow up eventually," Durant said after Sunday's down. "I realize that being in the house for eighteen months with the pandemic got a many individuals tense, got a many individuals worried, yet when you go to these games, you need to understand these men are human.
"We are not creatures; we are not in the bazaar. You going to the game isn't about you as a fan. Thus, have some regard for the game. Have some regard for the people, and have some regard for yourself. Your mom wouldn't be glad for you tossing water bottles at b-ball players or spitting on players or throwing popcorn. In this way, develop the f - up, and appreciate the game. It's greater than you."

Boston Celtics say getting solid the way to meeting assumptions next season after season finisher disposal
After a baffling season for Kemba Walker saw him pass on the last two rounds of the Boston Celtics' first-round season finisher misfortune to the Brooklyn Nets with a bone wound in his left knee, the Top pick monitor says this offseason is tied in with getting himself solid and back to the player he has been all through his vocation.
"It's extreme," Walker said subsequent to watching the Celtics lose 123-109 to Brooklyn in Game 5 on Tuesday night, finishing Boston's season. "It's been truly intense particularly in light of the fact that throughout the span of my profession, I've played such countless games when I've been sound.
"I came to Boston to be a piece of those exceptional runs and be a piece of extreme focus games and fans going wild, and I couldn't be a piece of that tragically. Simply attempt to get right. I gotta get right."
Walker spent basically none of this season ideal for the Celtics. Subsequent to managing left knee issues for the majority of the 2020 schedule year, Walker set out on a 12-week knee fortifying system that conveyed into January, making him miss the initial not many long stretches of the period.
Even after Walker returned, he played in just 50% of each consecutive set, making him miss 29 games. By examination, he missed just 35 in his initial eight seasons in the association with the Charlotte Hornets.
In any case, Walker said he thought the manner in which Boston dealt with his knee worked, and said the bone wound he endured in Game 2 of this arrangement - which prompted him battling powerfully in Game 3, preceding he passed on Games 4 and 5 - was the consequence of "landing interesting," and no of his earlier issues.
He said the objective currently is to spend the offseason getting himself solid, so that next season there will not be a need to go on such a program once more.
"I'm not anticipating it to be that way, truth be told," Walker said. "I'm truly anticipating having a major summer, make myself feel great once more. It's been some time since I've extremely had downtime. So this is actually a significant time for me.
"I'm very going to assault [the offseason]. Simply taking a break, ponder the year, simply consider a few things that I need to enhance, consider approaches to simply get myself back feeling better. Without a doubt, I need some an ideal opportunity for that."
Walker's future, given that he has two years and more than $73 million leftover on his agreement, is only one of a few inquiries approaching over the eventual fate of this group. Another is that of Evan Fournier, whom Boston gained utilizing the exchange exemption created by the Gordon Hayward sign-and-exchange last offseason, and who is an unhindered free specialist this late spring.
It has been a few months for Fournier in Boston, as he got Coronavirus very quickly after showing up from the Orlando Enchantment and afterward battled with the eventual outcomes of it after getting back to the court. Subsequent to playing in what could be his last game as a Celtic, he said it was too soon to say what will be at the forefront of his thoughts when he hits unlimited free office interestingly this late spring - which will occur while he's in Tokyo playing with the French public group at the Olympic Games.
"This isn't the perfect opportunity to discuss it," Fournier said. "In any case, what would i be able to enlighten you regarding the Celtics? It's clearly An or more kind of association. They truly showed it. They were truly eager to get me and they showed me a ton of adoration, and everyone was incredibly certain.
"It was difficult for me. Clearly my first game wasn't acceptable and afterward I had Coronavirus what not, yet they all stay, from staff, players, to the executives, they all showed a ton of affection and that is something I extremely appreciated. You know, I truly did.
"Thus, I mean free office, you know, we'll see. I don't have the date. I have no clue about when free office begins thus, we'll see."
The longest-tenured Celtic, Marcus Brilliant, additionally has a cloudy future with the establishment, given he has one year staying on his agreement and is qualified for an agreement expansion.
Brilliant, who stays outstanding amongst other protective gatekeepers in the group, was resistant when found out if Boston, which is falling off making the Eastern Gathering finals three of the previous four years, is still adequate to make it back to that level subsequent to seeing where the main competitors
