In 16 minutes against the Cavaliers in Monday’s loss, Aron Baynes hauled in five offensive rebounds. The last one hit his palms by surprise, bouncing off an abundance of players piled in the post. As he froze, like someone catching a stack of cash that fell out of the sky in disbelief, Al Horford pointed his finger toward the rim as if he was guiding Baynes to the hole in the backyard to bury...
