Al Horford played probably the best game in Celtics uniform, scoring game-high 27 points, including going off for 15 points just in the third quarter. Too bad the Celtics couldn't capitalise on 13-point lead and lost in the Philly. Big Al added eight boards, six dimes and two blocks as he was all over the place with Isaiah Thomas being out due to bruised knee.
Jae Crowder couldn't get as hot as against the Nets but he did score 15 points to go with seven boards and four assists. Crowder also went 7/8 from the free throw line and hit two threes on the night as the Celtics had only six 3-pointers overall (second straight game with less than 10 threes on the night).
Terry Rozier got himself a double-double, bouncing back from a poor performance in Brooklyn on his 23rd birthday. Rozier finished the game with 14 points and grabbed down team-high 10 rebounds, though he made some costly mistakes on the defensive end of the floor.
