Boston Celtics center Al Horford finished with only five points on 2-of-14 shooting on Wednesday, adding 10 assists and 7 rebounds as the Celtics lost 117-106 to the New York Knicks. What It Means: This was Horford's worst shooting day in a Celtics uniform, setting season-lows in field goals made, field goal percentage and points. He hasn't had a great season in Boston, and his 15.1 points per game are his fewest since the 2011-2012 season while his 6.8 rebounds per game are a career-low. His assist numbers are a bright spot though, and he's averaging a career-best 5.0 assists per...

Horford’s happy homecoming helped by IT’s hot hand in 103-101 win

Isaiah Thomas leads the Celtics over the Hawks. Sometimes a game takes on an early storyline and then morphs into something different entirely, before taking yet another turn and tonight was one of those nights. The game started out as Al Horford’s return to Atlanta, where he played the first nine years of his career. Then it quickly turned into a shooting exhibition by Boston, as the Celtics rained down triples to open the game. Then the game took another turn, Atlanta fought back in it and all of a sudden neither team could hit anything. After the hot start and a double digit lead, the...

However, the team elected to reverse course and have since not only taken Millsap off the trade...
