The Martinez boy injured in the Boston Marathon bombing, 12-year-old Aaron Hern, got a special homecoming Thursday night.

He and his family were special guests of the Golden State Warriors for Game 6 of the playoffs against the Denver Nuggets at Oracle Arena in Oakland.

The Hern family got to meet some familiar faces, like Klay Thompson and coach Mark Jackson, and watch the Warriors warm up before the game started.

Aaron also received a standing ovation from the crowd.

Once the family moved up to the suite, they were able to watch the game and were visited by San Francisco 49ers safety Michael Thomas and linebacker Darius Fleming.
