Al Horford was rock solid in Sunday's Game 1 win over the Bucks, dropping 20 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, a steal, three blocks and three 3-pointers.
Horford was about as good as it gets on either end of the floor. He was able to body Giannis Antetokounmpo just enough to allow ample help, preventing the Greek Freak from getting to the rack regularly and making him pay physically whenever he tried. The pick-and-pop game with Kyrie Irving gave the Bucks fits on the other end and Horford is going to be a central figure to Boston's success, as usual.
