Celtics montage: ‘Thank you’ Kendrick Perkins

In a Jumbotron montage, the Celtics paid homage to former center Kendrick Perkins, who returned to the Garden for the first time since being traded at the deadline to the Thunder for Jeff Green last February. Perkins started for the C’s during their 2008 NBA championship run, and if not for a knee injury in Game 6 of the 2010 NBA Finals, he may have won a second title in green. Following the tribute, in classic Perk form, he waved to the crowd in gratitude before resuming an argument with a referee about a call he took umbrage with earlier in the first half.
