Boston Marathon champion Des Linden was honored during Game 2 of the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics playoff game and received a standing ovation from the crowd.

On Monday, Linden became the first American woman to win the Boston Marathon in 33 years.

In rainy and windy conditions, Linden crossed the finish line in 2:39:54. It marked her first major marathon victory. She has made two U.S. Olympic teams for the marathon and says she plans on trying to make a third in 2020.
