The Boston Celtics are in the middle of a grueling playoff run, and they head into a pivotal Game 4 on Monday that could put them on the brink of elimination. In order to show his support before this huge clash, Red Sox star Trevor Story donned a Marcus Smart after his team's win on Sunday.
Story's classy gesture caught Smart's attention, and he responded with an awesome reaction on Twitter.
The Celtics' stud made sure to let Story know how much he appreciated the "love" that was shown through this wholesome act. He then took the time to shower praise on Story for his scorching series against the Seattle Mariners, where he went off for 5 home runs and 13 RBIs in a four-game sweep.
It's touching to see two key members of Boston's sports scene interact in this way. The Red Sox making it a priority to show support will surely give a little extra boost of confidence to the Celtics as they prepare for a make-or-break Game 4.
Hopefully Story's monstrous weekend rubs on Smart and the rest of his teammates as they look to respond following Miami's win in Game 3.
The Celtics are 6.5-point favorites over the Heat heading into Monday's showdown, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NBA Playoffs odds.
