Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett return to Boston and get a Celtics Pride welcome

After the first quarter Sunday night in his return to Boston, former Celtics [1] captain Paul Pierce [2] was given a stirring video tribute by the Celtics [1] 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 [2].”

During a minute-long video tribute with 2:25 left in the first quarter, Kevin Garnett [3] stood and watched in front of the Brooklyn Nets bench as he was cheered by Celtics [4] fans. At the end, he pounded his chest and pointed to the fans in appreciation.
