The Boston Celtics got to celebrate banner No. 18 in style today during the Championship Parade.

Championship Parades are something that the city of Boston has become quite familiar with.

Here are some of the best moments from the day:

It was a day of celebration throughout downtown Boston.

Takeaways from Game 5 of the NBA Finals

Stellar Outside Shooting

It's a completely different game than what it was when the Celtics won their last finals in 2008, as the three-point shot has transformed the game of basketball. While their percentage tailed off in the fourth quarter due to some missed threes by Jayson Tatum and company, Boston hit some big threes when it mattered most.

Derrick White finished out the season being the glue guy he's been all year, hitting four three-pointers and bailing the Celtics out of a handful of possessions with his outside shot. Sam Hauser and Al Horford also made their marks, while Boston also made their presence known in the paint.

Boston Wanting It More

Being up 3-1 on their home court played into it, but Boston wanted it more tonight out on the court. From the offensive rebounds to the effort plays on both sides of the ball, the Celtics made sure they capped this series off and the effort was evident. Three Celtics finished with two steals and the team had 15 offensive rebounds.

Mavericks Looking Gassed

It seemingly took everything for the Mavericks to blow out the Celtics in Game 4 to keep the series alive, and you could tell during tonight's game. Kyrie Irving still seemed rattled by the Boston crowd, and Luka Dončić got his team as far as he could. There's no doubt this is a talented Mavericks team, and if the band stays together they should be back in the NBA Finals soon enough.
