Al Horford logged 22 minutes and five fouls vs. the Blazers on Friday, but still performed with 15 points (6-of-9 FG), six rebounds, five assists, three 3-pointers and one block.
Horford will be seeing more minutes at center if Joel Embiid (ankle) misses time like he did on Sunday, and that should allow his numbers to improve across the board. With Simmons and Embiid potentially missing games, Horford's playmaking skills will be even more in demand. Next year could be a different story, but for now the Sixers can't get by without Horford's presence in the lineup.
