Wilcox To Support Team In Final Home Game

BOSTON – Chris Wilcox, who was having a fantastic season as the Boston Celtics’ reliable sixth man before an unexpected heart condition forced the 6-10 power forward to end his season prematurely, will be in attendance tonight for the final game of the regular season at Boston’s TD Garden when the Celtics take on the Milwaukee Bucks at 8:00 pm EST.

The Celtics, who have already clinched a playoff spot, need a win over the Bucks to preserve the possibility of owning home court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

Boston trails its first-round opponent, the Atlanta Hawks, by one game in the loss column. With a win tonight and a Hawks loss, the Celtics would earn Games 1 and 2 in TD Garden.

The Hawks play at home tonight against the Dallas Mavericks at 7:00 pm EST.

Wilcox had successful heart surgery on March 29th and is on pace to return to action for the start of the 2012-13 NBA season. To wish him good luck and continued recovery.

UPDATE: Press about Chris attending game.
