Al Horford was lethally efficient on Wednesday against the Wizards, shooting 8-of-9 from the field and 3-of-4 from deep on his way to 19 points
He chipped in six boards, seven assists and three blocks to round out his night, and was generally there to clean up anytime things broke down for the Celtics. The Wizards simply could not figure out a way to contain Horford, as he roasted their traditional big men by stepping out beyond the arc and tortured smaller guys with his post game and interior passing. Defensively, Horford altered a number of shots at the rim and helped bottle up pick-and-roll ball handlers when the Celtics were forced to switch. Boston will be looking for a repeat performance on Friday as the try and close out this series on the road.
