Last chance for Celtics to advance

WALTHAM - Game 7 at home used to be an advantage for the Celtics, virtually a guaranteed victory. That was before electronically programmed prompting of crowds and other virtual advancements.

The Celtics had a 13-2 record in Game 7s at Boston Garden. Since TD Garden opened in 1995, the Celtics have a 4-2 mark in Game 7s at home, and only one Celtic player - Paul Pierce - has participated in all six of those games.
