The Patriots are off to Atlanta on Sunday, but with one last night in New England, many of the guys spent it rooting for another Boston team.
The Celtics hosted the Golden State Warriors Saturday night, and even though the C's came up short against the defending champs, it seemed like the guys still had a ball. It didn't hurt that they were welcomed warmly by the TD Garden faithful.
Devin and Jason McCourty, Duron Harmon, James White, Sony Michel, Stephon Gilmore, Eric Rowe and Robert Kraft were all in the crowd. The Celtics played an awesome hype video in the arena to welcome the guys, and let's just say, the fans were into it.
Just a little bit.
In a video shared on Twitter by NBC Boston's Chris Forsberg, you can see (and hear) the crowd going crazy for their hometown football team.

There's something special about this region's teams. Boston sports teams are always here to support one another in their successes, and Boston fans are even more loyal. As the Patriots take off for Super Bowl LIII, they will need Patriots Nation to give everything they've got.
