And we're underway here in Boston.
"Please enjoy your night, and drive home safe," Rondo tells the assembled crowd.
Kevin Garnett is treated as a home player during intros, introduced last and with a flourish to a standing ovation.

DWill confident stats boost under Hollins: "I did a lot of standing in the corner last year. It’s hard to get assists standing in a corner."
Marcus Thornton just hit a half-court shot and sauntered off the court. Pretty sure he didn’t have any of the media dining.
Celtics media room dining has lobster mac & cheese. No one tell Marcus Thornton.
