Los Boston Celtics they needed to obtain a victory in the day of this Wednesday in order to stop what could be the extension of a string of defeats that already went for threewhich has led them to drop to second place in the Eastern conference.
However, they managed to get a important result before the visit they received from the Portland Trail Blazerswith another great day of his figure Jayson Tatum who was the best scorer, with 30 pointsfollowed by Derrick White con 21 goals and 7 assists.
But here we stand out just the same another good match for Al Horfordwho, as we have indicated in previous reviews, usually appears in these championship instancesabove all when your team needs you mostcontributing so much in offensive as well as defensive.
The Dominican culminated this commitment with 17 points and 6 reboundscon 7 of 11 on the court for 63.6%, getting better and better in this departmentand this has been reflected in the final score, this time being favorable to the current conference champions.
In this opportunity, Horford was crucial in some possessions of the third and last quartereven more because Jaylen Brown could hardly appear with 11 points; another nice detail is that was able to hold off the center of the Trail Blazers, the Bosnian Jusuf Nurkicand here was also the key to the triumph in the “TD Garden”.
With this, we can be completely sure that coach Joe Mazzulla will have Horford as one of the immovable in this rosterespecially at the time of start the postseasonjust the instance in which their performance tends to improve just as it happened in the last passes against the Golden State Warriorsonly this time there is no objective other than the title.
