Tatum made up for some of his early shooting and acknowledged that he will do whatever it takes to help contribute to win the game. Even if that...

BOSTON - Boston Celtics big man Al Horford was both rightfully excited and extremely forthcoming as he spoke with the media following a 88-87 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday at TD Garden.
The 76ers, of course, were the team Horford left the Celtics for following his first stint in Boston. He signed a massive contract with Philadelphia only to have it run dry shortly into his tenure with Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and company. He started 61 games during the 2019-20 season before, ahead of his age-34 season, he was traded to the rebuilding Oklahoma City...

The first matchup of the year for the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers didn't disappoint.
An underlying story line, though, amid the rivalry game featuring Ime Udoka and Doc Rivers coaching on opposite sidelines as well as some revenge for Al Horford, was the return of Robert Williams.
The young center made all the difference in his return, literally, getting a hand on what would have been the 76ers go-ahead attempt.

Was Celtics Win Vs. 76ers Bigger For Al Horford Or Sister Anna?

Al Horford had quite the revenge game against the Philadelphia 76ers on the court, scoring 10 points, eight rebounds, one assist and five blocks against his former team.
Meanwhile, his sister Anna was having a revenge game of her own on Twitter.
Neither of the Horford siblings were truly appreciated by the Philadelphia 76ers, and there certainly was no love lost between Anna and the fan base when her brother was sent to the Oklahoma City Thunder. So when Boston defeated Philadelphia 88-87, you can bet Anna took a victory lap.
“The Celtics won tonight and had a great team...
