Walton's wife and four sons were in attendance for the game. There was a moment of silence for him before the game tipped off, too.

Since his death, there has been an outpouring of celebration and tributes from in and around the sports world. Indiana Pacers coach and former Celtics guard Rick Carlisle has spoken out repeatedly his friend, and even told a great story how Walton set him up on a first date with his now wife at a Grateful Dead concert. Walton, who was unlike anybody else on the mic for ESPN, was a huge fan of the band and even received a tribute from Dead & Company at a concert last week.
