The chant inside the Garden is deafening right now, maybe because the pregame video featured a lot of Celtics beating up on Lakers material.
Both teams, including reserves, were introduced. The starting lineups came out from behind a giant replica of the NBA Championship trophy (well, except Garnett, who may have jumped right over it).
A loooooong break followed and now we’re ready for the tap! It is electrifying in here.
James Posey, who normally only puts Kevin Garnett in a bear hug, is delivering his special pregame ritual to the entire starting lineup. I think he lifted Perk straight off the ground!
