“True Detective Season 4.”

As Celtics followers have been reveling in a 22-point lead in Recreation 5 Thursday evening with 10 minutes to go, they obtained one other enjoyable shock. The TNT cameras panned courtside to Christopher Mintz-Plasse, aka “Superbad”‘s Fogell/McLovin, exchanging a handshake with none aside from Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe.

Boston followers appeared to understand the cameo — and sudden duo — on Twitter. Earlier within the sport, Mintz-Plasse pumped up the TD Backyard crowd on the jumbotron.

Mintz-Plasse was sitting together with his fiancée Britt Bowman, and Zappe together with his fiancée Hannah Lewis (Zappe introduced his engagement to Lewis on Instagram earlier this week).

He described his allegiances to Celtics group reporter Amanda Plugard when he was on the town for Recreation 1 of the Celtics-Hawks collection:
