Found April 17, 2013 on Beyond The Buzzer:
The Toronto Raptors hosted the Boston Celtics Wednesday night in what would be their final game of the season. It was the Celtics’ first game since the Boston Marathon tragedy that took place Monday, so in a classy move, the Raptors organization set up a touching series of events to pay tribute to all that were affected by the horrific bombings. First, both teams met at center court where they held a moment of silence, and then the Celtics were introduced to “Sweet Caroline.” The Celtics also wore a black stripe on their jerseys tonight to honor all of the victims.

Somehow, though, it felt even stranger than anticipated....
