Celtics & Bulls splash green in St Patrick’s Day celebration

Published Add your comment

The Boston Celtics and Chicago Bulls got in the spirit of St Patrick’s Day on Monday night, showcasing special edition green jerseys.

Steeped in Irish tradition thanks to the strong Irish Catholic community in Boston, the Celtics donned green “Celtic” sleeved jerseys for their 94-89 loss to the Dallas Mavericks.

It was the third such occasion wearing the special edition shirts for Boston franchise, but it has done little to improve their wretched record.

Currently 22-46, the Celtics are on a five-game losing streak that dates back to March 11th. The Luck of the Irish? Not so much, then.

But the Celtics weren’t the only team celebrating the Irish themed holiday this week - the Chicago Bulls also ditched their traditional red jerseys for green ones.

But just like the Celtics, they couldn’t get the W, going down 97-85 to Western Conference powerhouses, Oklahoma City Thunder.

Kevin Durant had 35 points and 12 rebounds for the Thunder while Taj Gibson top scored for the Bulls with 16 points.
