Celtics Reportedly Will Honor Kobe Bryant Before Game Against Warriors


January 30, 2020

Thursday night will mark the first Celtics game at TD Garden since the death of Kobe Bryant.

Boston will honor Bryant in lieu of typical pregame introductions, The Boston Globe’s Adam Himmelsbach reported Thursday, citing a source.

Bryant died Sunday in a helicopter crash that also claimed the life of his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven others.

Here’s Himmelsbach’s report:

In other Celtics news, Jayson Tatum is expected to play against the Warriors after missing the last three games. Enes Kanter will miss his fourth straight game due to a lingering hip issue.

The Celtics and Warriors will tip off at 8 p.m. ET.
