Kenyon Martin guarantees Celtics ‘funeral’ in Game 5

On his way into TD Garden on Sunday, a Celtics fan who watched his team fall into a 3-0 hole in the first round admitted, “It feels like I’m going to a wake.”
Celtics guard Jason Terry, who provided the sunshine in a Game 4 victory, must have felt it, too.
“The guy was mouthing off before the game,” Knicks forward Kenyon Martin told the New York Daily News. “He told me, ‘You’re not dancing at my funeral today.’”
Terry’s 18 points, including the C’s final nine in their 97-90 overtime win, made true on that promise. So, Martin made his own vow to lay the Celtics to rest in Game 5.
“We’re ending it Wednesday,” Martin told the Daily News, requesting his teammates “wear black. Funeral colors.”
