Celtics' Al Horford: Scores season-high 27 points in Sunday's loss
Horford had 27 points (11-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, six assists, two blocks, and one steal in 33 minutes during Sunday's 105-99 loss to the 76ers.
Horford was aggressive on offense with Isaiah Thomas (knee) sidelined for a second straight contest, and the big man finished with a season high in scoring. Prior to the last two games, Horford hadn't attempted 16 shots or more in a game since Jan. 7, this after taking at least that many in nine of his first 27 showings with the Celtics. Coach Brad Stevens already stated that he was hopeful Thomas would play Monday versus the Wizards, so Horford's time as the team's go-to option may be coming to a close.
