Celtics-version Al Horford takes control to upend Boston in 109-98 76'ers victory

But Horford could make Elton Brand look awfully smart over the next several games.
Embiid is expected to be out of action for a while following surgery, and Horford will be back at the center spot where he played most of the time with the Celtics. Quiet-spoken Al was obviously frustrated with his early-season role with his new team, but he will now have the chance to put his skills on display. We recall vividly what he used to produce for his former team. We saw it again last night. The Celtics-version of Al Horford had returned to haunt the team he chose to leave.
