Pratt’s Play of the Day (November 1)

Al Horford

When the Celtics traded for Al Horford to bring him back to Boston this offseason, many wrote the 35-year-old off due to his age. The five-time All-Star has been on a mission to prove those doubters wrong this year, emerging as one of the Celtics’ defensive centerpieces alongside Robert Williams. Horford is averaging 13.0 points, 10.5 rebounds and an incredible 3.8 blocks per game. While Boston has struggled to stay consistent so far in their young season, the same can’t be said for Horford, who has racked up 41+ DKFP in three-straight games. He’ll have his hands full with a tough Chicago frontcourt on Monday, but there’s plenty of upside for the Boston big man at $6,500.
