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.

Celtic Pride is about two die hard Boston Sports fans who after their beloved Boston Celtics lose game 6 of the NBA Finals, they go and accidentally kidnap the star of the opposing team.
This is a great movie that is very underrated when it comes to the great movies that came in the 1990's, and Daniel Stern and Dan Akyrod are a great duo then most people would think. If you are a Die Hard Sports fan, like myself, you will love this movie, I could relate to the dedication Daniel Stern and Dan Akyrod's character show.
For this movie to get a 5.2 makes me question the reviewers on IMDb, This is a movie that will put a smile on your face, and is very Underrated.
