The New Kids were very happy that the Boston Celtics advanced to the next round of the NBA playoffs! Donnie shared this short clip of them celebrating!
You'll notice Joey was not in the video because he was a little superstitious and didn't watch the game!
Joey talked about his plan not to watch, betting on the game in Las Vegas, and his thoughts about Celtics player Jayson Tatum wearing a Laker's purple armband (in honor of Kobe Bryant).
