    • Al Horford BOS C
      Celtics' Al Horford: Turns in eight points in series finale
      14h ago

      tallied eight points (4-8 FG), three rebounds and one assist over 27 minutes during Thursday's 135-102 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals.

      The veteran big man turned in his lowest point total of the series and scored in single digits for the first time since Game 2 of the first-round series versus the Bulls. The reduced output was essentially explained by the fact that Horford played just 27 minutes equaling his low-water mark in playing time during the postseason. The 30-year-old had an up-and-down first season in Boston and finished with averages of 14.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.3 blocks over 68 games. Notably, he shot a career-low 47.3 percent, while his scoring average was his lowest since his rookie 2007-08 campaign.

      managed six points (2-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists and one steal over 25 minutes during Thursday's 135-102 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals.

      After a breakout Game 3 performance in which he poured in 27 points, Smart hit the skids in Games 4 and 5, shooting just 3-for-16 while averaging 7.0 points, 4.0 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals. His lackluster efforts helped doom a squad in desperate need of offense after Isaiah Thomas' exit from the series with a hip injury. Despite the disappointing conclusion to the season, Smart's defensive prowess was a definite plus this season, and he also averaged career highs in points (10.6), assists, (4.6) and steals (1.6) while draining a career-best 81.2 percent of his free-throw attempts.

      Crowder's groin injury didn't seem to be overly serious, as he was able to play a starter's amount of minutes before heading to the bench once the game was clearly out of reach. The 26-year-old managed four double-digit scoring efforts during the series, shooting 46.4 percent overall. He averaged a solid 13.9 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.0 steals during the regular season and figures to once again be a key component of next season's roster.

      With the lopsided second-half score, Green saw a series-high amount of minutes and parlayed them into his highest scoring total since Game 6 of the first-round series against the Bulls. The veteran was effective from long range throughout the postseason, draining 50 and 56.3 percent of his shots, respectively, in the conference semifinals and finals, and tallying four double-digit scoring efforts overall across just 14.8 minutes per game. The 31-year-old was reasonably effective this season in his return to Boston after a 10-year absence, but he now enters free agency with no clear indication of where he could end up next season.

      Bradley once again took up the mantle of the go-to option on offense for Boston in the absence of Isaiah Thomas (hip), scoring over 20 points for the third time in the series. His 50 percent success rate from the field equaled his series-best tally from Game 1, and he drained multiple threes for the third time during the five-game set as well. Primarily due to Thomas' absence, Bradley finished the conference finals with an average of 19 shot attempts per contest, a definitive uptick from the first two rounds of the playoffs and the regular season. He'll head into the 2017-18 campaign coming off the best statistical season of seven-year career, having averaged 16.3 points, 6.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.2 steals across 33.4 minutes.

      posted six points (1-3 FG, 4-4 FT) five rebounds, one assist and one block over 29 minutes during Thursday's 135-102 win over the Celtics in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals.

      With the Cavs' Big Three hitting on all cylinders once again, Thompson played a definitively complementary role for the third time in the series' five games. The 26-year-old stepped up offensively during the series when called upon, logging double-digit scoring efforts in Games 1 and 3, including a double-double in the latter. Thompson was very solid on the boards in particular during last season's Finals versus the Warriors, hauling in 10.1 rebounds over the seven games. Therefore, he's likely to play a pivotal part in the rebounding department at a minimum in what should be a tough matchup down low versus Zaza Pachulia during the upcoming series.

Olynyk has averaged just 15.7 minutes over the first three games of the series, but should push for a much bigger role during Game 4. Jonas Jerebko also figures to see an uptick in minutes in the frontcourt off the bench.

While Pachulia remains sidelined, the will go with a slightly smaller lineup featuring Draymond Green at center and Patrick McCaw at small forward.

      The deal, while still unofficial, seems all but done. Once everything is sorted out, the Heat will permanently clear Bosh's remaining $52.1 million salary off the books, even if he resumes his career elsewhere. The 33-year-old hasn't taken the floor during the past season and a half due to blood clot episodes, for which he remains on blood thinners. He last played during the 2015 season, where he averaged 19.1 points and 7.4 rebounds while playing 53 games. It's unknown at this time if he will officially retire soon, but he worked as a guest studio analyst for Turner sports for a period of five weeks during this past season -- seemingly testing the waters outside of his playing career.

Milsap said back in early May that he wanted to remain with the , and Atlanta has the ability to offer the All-Star a max contract that pays around $205 million over five years. At 32 years old, it's a lot of money to invest in him, but given that Milsap will be the top power forward on the market this offseason, the Hawks will likely have no choice but to pay him that max deal if they wish to retain their star veteran.

It was his best shooting performance overall in the postseason and marked the second playoff game in which he eclipsed a 70 percent success rate from the field. The perennial All-Star also turned in his second-best rebounding effort of the series and best assist total since he'd dished out 12 against the Pacers in Game 3 of the quarterfinal round.
