New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and many of the team's players attend Boston Celtics games throughout the NBA season, and Sunday's first-round NBA playoff Game 1 at TD Garden was no different.

Kraft was spotted chatting with Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck before the C's took on the Indiana Pacers.

Kraft also received a huge ovation from Celtics fans during the game.

Patriots running back Sony Michel, who scored New England's only touchdown in its Super Bowl LIII victory over the Los Angeles Rams in February, also was in attendance for the Celtics' series opener.

The Celtics are hoping to join the Red Sox and Patriots among the Boston sports teams to win a championship over the last year.
