Celtics-Hawks preview: C's want to 'take care of business' for Horford

http://www.csnne.com/boston-celtics/boston-celtics-atlanta-hawks-preview-cs-want-take-care-business-al-horford

ATLANTA – Al Horford has been saying all the right things in leading up to tonight’s game, his first against his old team, the Atlanta Hawks.

“It’ll be different for me, first time going back. I’m looking forward to it,” he told reporters following Boston’s 117-108 win over Washington on Tuesday.

So are his teammates.

Of course they want to win because, well, that’s why you play the game.

But knowing Horford’s history with the Hawks, and how potentially emotional tonight could be for the usually subdued Horford, they come into tonight’s game wanting to win more than the usual obvious benefits that come with victories.

They want this one for Al.

“He’s level-headed no matter what,” said Boston’s Isaiah Thomas. “He’s the calm one in this room. But at the same time you know those games are big. You think about it, you want to play well, you want to beat your former team. But that’s our job. We have to take care of business for him, make sure he plays well. And most important, get the win.”

That looks to be a lot tougher now than a couple weeks ago when the Hawks looked like a club headed to the NBA lottery.

The Hawks (22-16) come into this game as one of the hottest teams in the NBA with wins in each of their last seven games to where they are now just 1 ½ games behind the Celtics (24-15) for the third-best record in the Eastern Conference.

And while the Hawks traded away sharpshooter Kyle Korver to Cleveland which will certainly impact their 3-point shooting, they added Mike Dunleavy Jr. from the Cavs who according to head coach Mike Budenholzer, will be dressed for tonight’s game but a decision on whether he plays has yet to be made.

Meanwhile the Celtics have been playing good basketball of late as well, with wins in 11 of their last 14 games.

And a key to their success has been Thomas who leads all scorers in the Eastern Conference with a 28.2 points per game average which ranks fourth overall in the NBA.

Atlanta’s defense will surely make trying to limit Thomas a priority.

But the talk of the night will be about Horford, and how he performs in what should be a well-played, tightly-contested game.

Horford acknowledged that tonight’s game is a big one, but that won’t lead to him preparing himself any differently.

“My approach is the same,” Horford said. “It’s a new experience for me but I have a job to do here with our team.”

I'll go with 109 needed to win, please.

Saturday Divisional round; Pats are favored by an insane 15.  They'll win by 17.
On the 44.5 point total, take the over.  Going to be an ugly evening for the Texans.

Evening gents, and Rosalie!

Hooter do you have a Celtics sign, or should we just look for the drooling dude next to the hot blonde?

I'll go with 103 for the contest tonight.

Can't believe today's stats.

2 quick 3s by Kelly. We sure could use him to be hot tonight. Force Millsap to guard him and force Howard to deal with Horford shooting outside too. Post up Smart on Sefelosha.

This is a good game to be hot in. Gotta draw Millsap and Howard away and Howard will NOT be happy doing that.
