The Boston Celtics will play at the TD Garden for the first time Friday night since the events of the Boston Marathon.
The Celtics need a pick-me-up after losing the opening two games of their first-round playoff series against the Knicks. The city of Boston could use one, too, after a traumatic two weeks of bombings and manhunts and grieving.
“He’s good. He’s good to go,” Celtics coach Doc Rivers said of Garnett during a conference call with reporters. “He’ll practice tomorrow, and he’ll play on Friday.”
