On March 6, , the Boston Celtics lost 129-131 in overtime at home to the New York Knicks and suffered a two-game losing streak
At the last moment, veteran Al Horford had a chance to win the game with a three-pointer, but as his shot from the bottom corner missed the basket, the Celtics could only swallow another loss.
“I didn’t feel tired at the end of the game. I may have been a little anxious when I took the shot. The remaining time may be a little more abundant than I thought at the time,” Horford recalled when talking about the key three-pointer he missed at the last moment.
I didn’t hold it long enough after the shot, Tatum executed that tactic so well, if he did it again, he might still make the same choice, maybe keep the shot longer.”
As a 36-year-old veteran, Horford played 46 minutes, 7 of 15 shots and 6 of 10 from beyond the three-point line. He scored 20 points, 14 rebounds, 6 assists, 1 steal and 2 blocks.
