Horford scored nine points (4-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt) to go along with six rebounds, six assists, two blocks and one steal across 24 minutes during Sunday's 121-99 loss to the Cavaliers. Horford was a bit passive at the offensive end, but he contributed across the board in typical fashion. He's in a bit of an offensive slump of late, averaging just 8.3 points per game over the last four. Horford has in part compensated for this by blocking seven shots over that span, but it will certainly help his fantasy value if he can become a bit more aggressive when looking for his shot.
Horford accounted for two points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists, and two blocks in 24 minutes Tuesday as Boston fell to Toronto. The Raptors were exerting a lot of effort on keeping the ball out of Horford's hands. He faced full-court defensive pressure for most of the night, and it kept the Celtics out of their offensive rhythm. It will be interesting to watch whether or not other teams take a similar approach. Horford's ability to create is crucial for maintaining an effective flow of the offense. Tuesday's matchup with the Raptors marked only the fifth time Horford has had more turnovers than assists in a game.
Horford delivered 22 points (8-12 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 10 rebounds, five assists and two blocks, as well as the last-second game winner, across 36 minutes in Super Sunday's 97-96 win over Portland. Big Al continued his role as "point-center" with Kyrie Irving (quad), Marcus Smart (finger) and Shane Larkin (knee) all out. Horford's all-around game was just what Boston needed to sneak by Portland, and his last-second, step-back jumper from the elbow sealed the comeback win. He continues to lead the Celtics with 5.2 assists per game, up from last year's career high of 5.0 dimes per contest. Look for Al to continue leading the C's on Tuesday night in Toronto.
Horford registered 17 points (7-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven assists, six rebounds, one steal and one block across 29 minutes during a 119-110 win over the Hawks on Friday. Horford put together another strong all-around effort in the win. The seven assists marked his highest total since Jan. 11 as he took on a slightly larger distributing role with Kyrie Irving (quad) sidelined. Horford also managed to knock down a three-pointer for his 11th straight game, his longest such stretch of the season.
Horford posted 14 points (6-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, five assists and two steals from only 23 minutes in Wednesday's 103-73 blowout win over the Knicks. Horford got a play a bit of "point center" as the Celtics were without Kyrie Irving (quad) and Marcus Smart (finger), often grabbing a rebound and bringing the ball up himself to start the offense. Horford's passing skills nicely complimented Terry Rozier's first career triple double. The blowout win also allowed Horford to rest for much of the second half. His 23 minutes of run was his lowest total of the season for the 47 games in which he has been active. Horford continues to lead the Celtics with 5.3 assists per game. Big Al hopes to continue is winning ways Friday at home versus the Hawks, who have given up the third most fantasy points per game to opposing centers.
