The Boston Celtics are a .500 team again after getting some revenge against the Cleveland Cavaliers Monday evening, winning 98 – 92 on the road with some critical late play from a familiar tandem of players.
Those two players, veteran big man Al Horford and reserve point guard Dennis Schroder, have a chemistry between them that predates their time as Celtics, with the duo having previously played together as members of the Atlanta Hawks. That chemistry was on full display as Boston sought to close out a pesky Cavs in their second meeting of the season, and composes part of what Horford thinks the Celtics can use to get some separation from other teams.
“I think it’s good to have as a team, we need to have different options,” related the Dominican big man as he spoke to the press after the win.
