With a roster that includes a couple of O'Neills, plus a Murphy, Pierce and Allen, the Boston Celtics are ready for St. Patrick's Day this year as they take on the Indiana Pacers at the TD Garden on Wednesday, March 16, at 7:30 p.m.
The Celtics have also drafted singer Paul Byrom, from the PBS group Celtic Thunder, to sing the American National Anthem prior to the tip off tonight.
