Celtics on Ice

In February 1952 the Boston Celtics played a game at Midnight to accommodate a performance by the Ice Follies. While it was common for Celtics (and Boston Bruins) home games to be scheduled around ice shows and other annual visitors to the Boston Garden, playing a game at Midnight was a unique example of the creative promotions used to market pro basketball in the early days of the NBA.
