"LETS GO CELTICS" chant dominated the Barclays Center

Even in defeat, it is hard to keep the green down.

Fans of Boston sports teams are spoiled by the amount of great moments we have in our shared history, but I would dare to say that Game 6 from the 2012 ECF ranks up there with the best of them.

Guaranteed if a strategically placed "Let's Go Celtics" chant breaks out in January when Pierce and Garnett return to the TD Garden, the tear drops start falling on the court.
