The National Basketball Association play-offs are taking place, and the Boston Celtics are facing the Utah Jazz in a crucial series. This is also the last year that any games will be played in the Boston Garden, which is going to be torn down after the end of the season. Mike and Jimmy, two die-hard sports fans who will risk anything for the Celtics to win, are really getting into the games. The Celtics would be a sure win if it weren't for Lewis Scott, the cocky, loud-mouth star of the Jazz. After Scott himself punishes the Celtics in a bad loss, Mike and Jimmy decide to take things into their own hands by kidnapping Scott and holding him until after the crucial game takes place. Written by
After badly spraining his right ankle in the one-on-one game with Lewis, Mike goes to see his wife and can barely walk up the stairs. In a subsequent shot while they are all at the dinner table, a long shot shows Mike vividly bouncing his right leg on the ball of his foot showing no signs of the injury, impossible to do without immense pain.

Yo, coach, I'll play. Just give me a chance. I can handle the rock.
I'll call you if I need you, Lurch.
Don't dog me, coach. I've got the bad crap.
Well, I'll tell you what, you take the bad crap and this basketball and DO THE DRILLS! Now!
[Lurch misses a sure slam dunk]
I hate my life.

After the credits, the Boston Garden is demolished. (This is a special effect; at the time the movie was released, the real Garden was still standing.) See more »
P.E. teacher Mike O'Hara (Daniel Stern) and plumber Jimmy Flaherty (Dan Aykroyd) are friends and obsessive fans of the Boston Celtics; to them, the Celtics are life, to the point where Mike's marriage is crumbling because his wife can't handle his mood swings after the Celtic's games. The Celtics and the Utah Jazz tied at three games each in the NBA finals, Mike and Jimmy spot Lewis Scott (Damon Wayans) in a bar. The Jazz's star, Lewis' talent on the court is exceeded only by his arrogance. Mike and Jimmy start buying Lewis more drinks, posing as Jazz fans; they wake up hung over to discover that they kidnapped Lewis while drunk, and he's tied to a chair in Jimmy's living room. Neither of them planned this and at first they think they ought to let him go. But if Lewis can't play the final game, the Celtics chances are improved. Celtic Pride started out as a good idea, but the movie got worse after they kidnapped the player. I was disappointed with Celtic Pride, view at your own risk.
