It’s about 10 minutes from tip time and the Garden is starting to buzz. For marketing/TV purposes, the Celtics  handed out green t-shirts to the fans that say, “Boston is a Brotherhood.”

Still no sign of the real Garnett though. Stay with us all afternoon for updates and analysis and also check out Celtics.com  for Jess and myself on Cover It Live.
