Horford finished with 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists. He had been one point or one assist shy four times in his two-and-a-half seasons with the Celtics.
"Yeah, I've always been close a lot of times. And tonight I looked at my wife, and she was like, you better get that assist and that rebound!" Horford said. "I'm glad I did it. Most importantly, we got the win."
Horford has sat out three of the Celtics' past five games as the season wears down, but in the games he has played, he has had an impact. In his past five games, Horford is averaging 19.8 points, 7.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists.
"I don't think we can overstate his importance to our team," Celtics coach Brad Stevens said.
