Last night was a huge night for Boston and Al Horford in Milwaukee. Horford scored a playoff-high 30 points and was able to match his teammate Tatum in points. Horford, however, seemed an entirely different player last night as the 5x All-Star was a force on both sides of the court. The Boston center played with lots of emotion last night and even threw down a mean posterizing jam on former Defensive Player of the Year Giannis Antetokounmpo. Boston guard Marcus Smart had this to say about Horford after the game, “…Best vet we’ve ever had. Best vet I’ve ever had. He comes in, and never changes whether things are going bad or good. He’s going to be him, and nine times out of 10, it’s going to work out in our favor.”
Not even the Greek Freak who put up 34 points and 18 rebounds could stop the Celtics squad as they plowed through the Bucks’ defense time and time again. It was an incredibly physical game and every player from both teams was getting into it one way or another.
This series seems like it could go down to the wire with both teams leaving it on the court with each game.
