Celtics honor legend Jo Jo White at TD Garden

The Celtics took a moment to honor legend Jo Jo White Thursday night, who passed away from pneumonia two days prior.

There was a video tribute played during the first timeout of the first quarter, filled with White's greatest moments as a member of the Celtics along with clips from his Hall-of-Fame induction and picture of him with his old teammates.

They also laid his jersey and flowers on the seat where he used to watch games from throughout the Celtics' most recent 'Big 3' era, and if you drove down 93 South on the Zakim Bridge, you'll see a picture tribute on the side of TD Garden, honoring the late great, who led the Celtics to two championship titles in 1974 and 1976 (Finals MVP).

Jo Jo's widow and daughter were in attendance to witness the special tribute.
