KG and Pierce Return to the Garden

via thenosebleeds.com

For the first time this season, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce will return to Beantown, the city where they both won their one and only blue chip. The two teams will square off in the Garden at 6:30 PM eastern time. For Pierce, it will be the first time ever that he will play in the Boston Garden while not wearing Celtics green. It will likely be an emotional night in the Garden. The Truth and KG will undoubtably get a long, loud standing ovation from the Boston Faithful.

Rondo spoke about the topic with ESPN's Chris Forsberg...
"Just like I played against [Oklahoma City's Kendrick Perkins on Friday] night," said Rondo. "There might be a lot of [expletive]-talking, but it’ll be fun. They are competitors, they compete. And I’ll do the same." 
It was announced that there will be two separate pre-game video tributes; one for Pierce and one for Garnett.

Thank you for everything you two have done for the Celtics organization and the city of Boston. Here is a tribute to the veterans careers as Celtics:
