“Our sympathies and condolences go out to all of the families that were affected by this disaster in Boston,” Jason Terry said. “And the Boston people who are constricted to their homes right now while they try to find these people that have done this terrible thing. We’re thinking about it, but, again, fortunately we got out of there in time, so we’re not too distracted. But they are in our thoughts.”

“Well you can’t help but to see it,” echoed Paul Pierce. “You wake up, turn on the Internet, it’s cause for concern, especially with us having families in the areas that these situations are happening in. I got phone calls from home, the whole city’s locked down, especially in the area where I live at, so it’s definitely a concern. You worry. But, we’re here, there’s nothing we can really do about it. Hopefully everything takes care of itself back home with the law enforcement doing what they have to do to secure the situation.”

Added Kevin Garnett: “The city’s crazy, man. I think everybody’s kind of trying to at least focus in a little bit on, obviously, our game and the playoffs. But the obvious thing is everybody’s worried, also. I hope everybody back home, especially in the whole New England area, is OK, and safe.”
