I am fully in the camp that Horford is an all star and a max player and I love having him on the Celtics.  He's been the best player for the Celtics in the playoffs.

But... Seeing him take 4 shots in 30 minutes in a blowout loss makes is frustrating to argue with those who say he's overrated and too passive. While I generally disagree with that assessment of his game, he does have to be more aggressive than he was in Game 3.

Agreed, but as he's not the primary ball handler, it would be nice to see someone pass him the ball. There was far too much isolation ball. The ball should touch Horford's hands on most if not all positions. Pull up threes and Morris going one on one will not win games.

Sure Horford needs to be more aggressive, but his team mates have to help him with that.

Totally agree, the ISO was bad. Cleveland fans think Big Al cannot shoot due to Thompson owning him.

Cleveland defend the low-post up really well.

Al's strength is really playing out of the high post.

Al Horford, TRoz & whatever it takes for KAT & Teague!!!!! ;D

But in all seriousness, this was a simply pathetic game from Al. Hope Brad and the others give him a good bake, because he deserves it

  To be fair to him he was getting doubled every time he touched the ball. He still should’ve done a better job finding the open man though

Not to mention he made Larry Nance look like Andre Drummond on the offensive boards, and played some of the worst defence I've ever seen him play. Disgusted with his effort

he surely is overpaid. BUT he is very valuable to this team. and perhaps danny had to overpay to change the culture/notion in boston that we can't sign big free agents.

There is a reason Danny went out and got Kyrie Irving/Gordon Hayward....Horford wasnt/isnt supposed to be "the guy" he is/was supposed to be the 3rd guy who can facilitate and score when needed.

Weird how you started a Terry is a keeper thread after one good game, but didn't start/bump one about how he's a bum after game 5.
