BOSTON (AP) - The TD Garden was swarming with police Friday night for the playoff game between the Boston Celtics against the New York Knicks.
Both outside the building and on the floor.
The Celtics are planning to honor the first-responders from last week's Boston Marathon bombing during the game. Doctors and nurses who treated the injured also are going to be recognized as ``Heroes Among us,'' along with volunteers from the Boston Athletic Association.
The Celtics are playing their first home game since the April 15 attacks that killed three and injured hundreds more.
The Knicks take a 2-0 lead into Game 3 of the best-of-seven series.
