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.
There are a lot of reasons to say yes, but the answer may not be what you think.
I am not a fan of Boston teams. So why am I sporting green tonight as if I spent my childhood in Hyde Park?
