Celtics ready to be contenders again

Horford makes difference on both sides of the ball.

The acquisition of Center Al Horford by the Boston Celtics this offseason was huge not only money wise but offensively and defensively as well.  Horford, who played his previous nine seasons with the Atlanta Hawks, has made quite a name on the offensive and defensive sides of the ball over the years.

“And then he’s going to make them better defensively, which is a little scary because of his pick-and-roll defense, and how he protects the rim. So he just — all-around, he’s going to help them get better.”

The Celtics open the regular season at the Garden against the New Jersey Nets on October 26th.  Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to grab yours today and help cheer on your Boston Celtics.
