After the first quarter Sunday night in his return to Boston, former Celtics [3] captain Paul Pierce [4] was given a stirring video tribute by the Celtics [3] on the TD Garden video board. The crowd stood and cheered for several minutes while the cameras showed Pierce thanking the fans who chanted, “Thank you, Paul Pierce [4].”

During a minute-long video tribute with 2:25 left in the first quarter, Kevin Garnett [5] stood and watched in front of the Brooklyn Nets bench as he was cheered by Celtics fans. At the end, he pounded his chest and pointed to the fans in appreciation.
