The Boston Celtics will get their chance to exact some revenge on the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 2 of their East semis series this Tuesday night, and veteran big man Al Horford knows what his team needs to do to get it. Speaking after shootaround on game day, the Florida product emphasized that the Celtics “need to be executing their offense better,” and “making sure we’re getting open to offset their pressure.”
Noting that the Bucks were an elite defense as well, Horford stressed the importance of making the right plays. “Our guys will continue to figure that part out,” he said.
“The intensity of the game has gone up, and that usually happens as the playoffs go. It gets more intense, and that’s something that we have to adjust to.”
