Kyrie Irving was the subject of poor fan treatment Sunday night after the Brooklyn Nets’ victory in Game 4 against the Celtics at TD Garden in Boston.

Irving was heading back to the locker room when someone hurled a water bottle at him. He and teammates Tyler Johnson turned back and looked up into the stands. Police surrounded a man in a Celtics’ Kevin Garnett jersey, placed him in handcuffs and led him out of the arena.

“We have zero tolerance for violations of our guest code of conduct,” TD Garden spokeswoman Tricia McCorkle said. “And the guest is subject to a lifetime ban from TD Garden.”

The latest incident follows three fan incidents in three NBA playoff games. The fans in question were banned indefinitely.
