It was fantastic night for over 75 Canton Youth Basketball players (and their parents) at the TD Garden last night as the Boston Celtics played the New Orleans Pelicans. Some Canton players sat court side as the Celtics did warm-ups, others did layups and shot around on the famous parquet court before the game, others were "anthem buddies" and got to stand with Celtics players during the National Anthem, and others got to play in a halftime scrimmage!
