"They're going to enjoy the game, as the game goes along, they're going to boo, they're going to cheer".
Boston Celtics fans plan on letting their feelings be known as well with a custom made t-shirt that are being sold before tip-off. "Those are two big pieces that we need down the line, so I'm expecting us to come out and have a lot of energy". It's one of the best fan bases in the league. "That's what they're supposed to do".
It's worth mentioning both Al Horford and Jae Crowded missed this game, really giving the Celtics zero chance against the star-heavy Warriors.
The Warriors were especially dominant in the third quarter, outscoring the Celtics 31-9 to effectively put the game out of reach. Boston shot 2 for 17 in the period and turned the ball over five times.

Kyrie Irving led the way with 25 points.
Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy replaced second-year swingman Stanley Johnson in the rotation with Reggie Bullock, who contributed five points. "We started subbing, it was bad". I still love playing here.
Boston chipped it down to 11 points in the final 90 seconds. This is now the second time Thomas is calling out his team for lack of effort, and it's evident that severe underachieving will not fly with IT. He hit a free throw after the Pistons were called for a defensive three-second violation, then knocked down his second 3-pointer of the game.
The Warriors led by 30 in the third quarter, becoming the first visiting team to lead by 30 since last season, when Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder did it.
Draymond Green led Golden State in assists with eight. When his tipped short grazed the front rim, there was Horford - playing in his first game since October 29 (concussion), without a body in front of him - to rebound the miss, put it off glass and through the net. Horford missed his ninth consecutive game with a concussion, while Crowder sat out for the eighth straight contest with a sprained left ankle.
While these two teams don't play often, there tends to be fireworks whenever they do. The Celtics handed the Warriors one of their nine regular season defeats last season and lost the other matchup in double overtime - but Golden State has won four straight at TD Garden.
They joined the Lakers, Celtics, 76ers, Knicks, Hawks and Pistons in that group. You boo him. I think most of that stuff is tongue-in-cheek.
