So what's a Utah Jazz fan to do, with no one to root for in the following month or so of NBA playoffs?

Jazz management has made a suggestion, on the readerboard outside EnergySolutions Arena: Root for the Boston Celtics.

The message, with a Celtics logo and the words "United We Stand," was put up as a show of solidarity with the city of Boston after this month's bombings at the Boston Marathon.

However, if Jazz fans want to root for the Celtics, they'd better do it fast. The guys in green are down 3-1 to the New York Knicks in the first round of the playoffs. (At least they're putting up a fight, unlike the Lakers, amirite?)
