It’s been more than a year since the Boston Celtics last played a game in front of fans at TD Garden. That all changed Monday evening as the team tipped off in front of a small — 12 percent capacity — but enthusiastic crowd.

Jason Tatum took to Twitter a day early to express his excitement over playing in front of the fans.

Here are photos and social media posts from TD Garden as the Celtics took on the New Orleans Pelicans:.
