The Celtics are down 73-60 at halftime to the Brooklyn Nets, but don’t tell the Boston faithful at TD Garden. For the first time since March 8th last year, the team has invited a near full capacity through the entrance at the North Station doors for Game 4 of the NBA Playoffs.

It’s been over two years since Boston has hosted a home playoff game (Kyrie Irving’s final appearance at TD Garden in Celtics green) and on Friday night, the Garden was at 25%, but that’s nothing like a full crowd with those seventeen championship banners hanging from the rafters.
