Prior to their home opener, the Boston Celtics paid tribute to the victims of the terrible shooting that occurred in Lewiston, Maine this week.

The Maine Celtics, Boston’s NBA G League club, provided their warm-up uniforms. In support of the state during its recovery from the shooting that left 18 people dead and 13 injured at a bar and bowling alley in the area, the Celtics also wore a band on their jerseys.

The jersey band, which was positioned over their Vistaprint-sponsored logo patch, simply said “Maine.”

Along with a green and white graphic of the state outline on the jumbotron, fans held a moment of silence prior to kickoff.
