“Whoever mocked him before, then it is a shame. Al Horford sure is a sniper.Tatum said in the news conference after the 114-102 win over the 76ers.
“He’s been there, he’s shown it and it’s very important to what we’re trying to achieve as a team. Because he’s taken his game from early in his career to now, being such an impact shooter, being someone who, you know, makes our offense really special.” Horford finished Friday night’s game scoring five of his seven attempts from long range and hitting six of his eight attempts in total. He also contributed seven rebounds, two assists and the same number of fumble recoveries.
“You get me, you have JB (Jaylen Brown) but what really helps us create space on the court is Al (Horford). You have to worry about us getting to the basket, if you come in to help (on defense), we have shooters around and Al takes shots.” Great and hits big shots,” Tatum continued.
Three of Horford’s five long-range baskets came in the second half of the game, including one in the fourth period, and with one of his hits the Celtics were able to build a huge lead during the game.
