Today is June 17, aka 617 day, and the Celtics are giving all Bostonians a flashback to the last time they won a championship on June 17, 2008.

In case you missed it, the Celtics blew a 10-game winning streak in their loss to the Mavericks on Friday night. Now, the C’s will be back at TD Garden tonight for Game 5. You may need to see the mascot Lucky the Leprechaun for a pot of gold — tickets start at ~$1,300.

Tonight, the Celtics will have the chance for a repeat NBA Finals win on June 17. Tune in at 8:30 p.m. with a Lord Hobo 617 beer to see if they can bring home Banner No. 18.
