Fans in attendance at TD Garden for Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Finals got to witness a historically poor start from the Miami Heat on Tuesday night.

Among those present as the Boston Celtics attempted to even the series at 2-2 with the Miami Heat include numerous members of the New England Patriots, the ​fiancée of Boston head coach Ime Udoka, as well as a few players from a potential future Eastern Conference rival.

Damien Harris, himself a budding Celtics superfan, was among the Foxboro contingent, along with his backfield mate James White and defensive backs Devin McCourty and Malcolm Butler — as well as McCourty’s twin brother, Jason, a former New Englander who’s currently a free agent.

Butler, who re-joined the Patriots this offseason after initially departing as a free agent following his pseudo-benching in Super Bowl LII, drew a rousing ovation from the crowd at the Garden.

Long, the actress currently engaged to Udoka, once again had her customary seat along the parquet.

Elsewhere around the building, you could find rapper Gucci Mane.

Members of the Detroit Pistons, including 2021 No. 1 overall pick Cade Cunningham, were at TD Garden, perhaps to get a feel for what it takes to become a playoff team. Detroit finished 23-59 this season, the third-worst mark in the NBA.

Lastly, former Celtics big man Glen “Big Baby” Davis was seen sitting courtside…in seats that, hopefully, were actually his this time around.
