(NECN: Tom Langford, Boston, Mass.) - Going into the Garden, fans were loud, whether rooting for the Celtics or the Lakers.
Fans arrived by cab, by subway, and for this crew from Pittsfield, New Hampshire... by stretch limousine.

Jeff Darrah says, "It was a heck of a ride.  A lot of fun and i'm looking forward to the game."
Alan Enario says, "Its totally great. this is what its about."
And Joe Darrah adds, "Its awesome.  Once in a lifetime experience."
 It was Darrah's idea to take the two hour ride from New Hampshire to Boston in a limo.
And why not go in style?
He says, this could be the Celtics last shot at a championship for a while.
"It could be the last year.  Kevin Garnett's not getting any younger.  Ray Allen's going to be a free agent.  You never know what's going to happen, we've got to see."
Overall, Celtics fans are feeling pretty confident.
In fact -- super fan Aztec Gino is guaranteeing a Celtics win tonight.
"I'm confident.  I'm pumped.  The fans are pumped. And I guarantee a victory."
