Day at the Celtics’ side
As our Boston Celtics faced off against the Washington Wizards for Game 7 of the playoffs, stars descended upon TD Garden and the surrounding area.
Before the game even began, the Wizards were spotted preparing to face off against the Celtics again. Earlier in the day, the team practiced at the Equinox Sports Club on Avery Street. The gym is inside the Ritz-Carlton in the Theatre District, where the Wizards have been staying throughout the playoff series during the games in Boston. ESPN was also at the hotel yesterday, with a camera crew filming the players as they entered the courts at Equinox.
Come game time, you could find Victoria’s Secret model and Brazilian bombshell Alessandra Ambrosio on the sidelines. The supermodel has been appearing around town during the filming of “Daddy’s Home 2” with Mark Wahlberg, Mel Gibson, Will Ferrell and John Lithgow.
Hip-hop artist Mike Stud was sitting right by Ambrosio. The musician, who will be performing at the Paradise Rock Club on Commonwealth Ave. July 15, also showed up to Game 2 of the C’s-Wizards playoff series.
On the athlete front, Bruins defenseman Torey Krug was in the crowd. Meanwhile, you could see many a Patriots player. This time around, Duron Harmon, Eric Rowe, LeGarrette Blount, Cyrus Jones, Dion Lewis, Shaq Mason, Jonathan Jones and Devin Lucien were hanging out in the stands.
And watching from a suite was Patriots head coach Bill Belichick.
Last night wasn’t the first playoff game where the Patriots came out in droves to support the Celts. Over the course of this series alone, team owner Robert Kraft has made it to the Garden, in addition to Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola, Jimmy Garoppolo, Brandin Cooks, Stephon Gilmore, Rob Ninkovich, Jonathan Freeny, David Andrews, Trey Flowers, Geneo Grissom, Malcolm Butler, Patrick Chung, James White, Malcolm Mitchell, Rex Burkhead, Jacoby Brissett and Vince Valentine.
Now, if we could have gotten that group into their own Celtics Dancers’ uniforms, we would have had the greatest halftime performance of all time.
