Al Horford hinted he may have been playing through an injury in the postseason. "Everybody has bumps and bruises as season goes on," Horford said. "That’s all I’ll say. I’m fine, just get healthy." Horford has been fairly healthy since the All-Star Game, missing just two games since the beginning of February. He saw his minutes really rise in the playoffs with 33.9 per game, but he likely would've played more had the Celtics been involved in closer games. Over the course of the whole regular season, Horford was a mild letdown for fantasy, so he may be an early-mid guy next year.

Boston played through Al Horford during Sunday's Game 3 win in Cleveland, and he finished with 16 points, six assists, two rebounds, one steal and a pair of 3-pointers. The Celtics took their first lead of the series on a bucket from Horford to open the scoring tonight, and his playmaking was critical. He shot just 7-of-18 from the field, but was aggressive in the post and allowed his teammates to get open looks -- they had six players in double-figures tonight. Kelly Olynyk was also effective with 15 points (5-of-8 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs), three rebounds and two assists, and Boston used their size to score 36 points in the paint vs. 24 for the Cavs. They'll try to duplicate the feat and even the series on Tuesday.

Al Horford scored 11 points with five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes in a loss to the Cavs on Friday. What happened to the Horford from the last round? He didn't make any field goals in the first half today and he's also been a no-show on the defensive end. The Celtics can't figure out what to put next to Horford with Amir Johnson being next to him in Game 1 and Jae Crowder shifting to the four in this ugly loss. He really needs to play better in Game 3.

Al Horford had 11 points, eight rebounds, six assists, one steal, one 3-pointer and three turnovers in 38 minutes during the Celtics' 117-104 loss on Wednesday. Horford missed his first six shot attempts before finding a rhythm offensively. He was also torched early on defense while switching onto LeBron James, and the Celtics are likely to tweak their approach for Game 2, but fatigue is a potential culprit. Boston was two days removed from an exhausting seven-game series, while the Cavs had a nine-day rest following their sweep of the Raptors.

Al Horford scored 20 points with six rebounds, three assists and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Wizards on Friday. Despite the loss, he's been outstanding and his jumpers just keep falling. Horford had a 63.9 effective field goal percentage on his 54 jumpers in his previous playoff games while he's only been blocked just four times on his 111 attempts. This is the Horford the Celtics signed up for last summer.
