Isaiah Thomas scores 26 points in return, Al Horford with block party and highlights of C's defense (videos)

Isaiah Thomas returned to action in fashion, scoring game-high 26 points and dishing out five assists as the Celtics snapped 3-game losing streak and beat the Hornets in the Garden. It's great to see Isaiah back on the court -- let's just hope it's a begging of some winning time!

Al Horford added 18 points on 6/11 shooting to go along with eight rebounds, five dimes and five blocks. Celtics bigman was doing pretty much everything in this game, being effective on the offensive end of the floor and providing some good plays on the defensive end. Swatting away five shots in one game? Well, that's something Celtics fans don't see very often!

And last but not least, here are some highlights of Celtics defense lead by Al Horford himself. Hornets shot just 32 percent from the field (32/98) and give the ball away 14 times which led to 24 points off the turnovers for Boston. Overall, Celtics as a team had seven steals and eight blocks.
