Updated

on

(T)heir (Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett) highly-anticipated return to Boston Sunday night — Game No. 42 of the regular season for the 2013-14 Brooklyn Nets — proved to be the most difficult game either of the future Hall of Famers has ever had to endure.

“I was telling Kevin, I was telling everybody — this was the toughest game I ever had to play,” Pierce said after he and Garnett were treated like rock stars at TD Garden, receiving raucous ovations and emotional video tributes that nearly moved them to tears before the Nets beat the Celtics 85-79 in front of a sellout crowd.

Garnett called the Celtics’ treatment of him and Pierce Sunday night “over the top.”
