Before the Knicks and Celtics tipped off the postseason at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, Paul Pierce and Carmelo Anthony stood together at center court, and each spoke briefly on the tragic Boston Marathon bombings that occurred earlier this week.

Anthony sent along prayers and condolences on behalf of the Knicks organization, while Pierce thanked everyone for their support, before finishing his remarks by saying, “Boston will rise and run again.”
