Horford does it all, Thomas gets 16/9, Crowder adds 16 and Bradley shines as playmaker (videos)

Al Horford posted 18 points, eight boards, six assists and four steals, being Celtics' top scorer in United Center last night. Big Al started strong and had it going all game long as he and Isaiah Thomas worked in pick-and-roll actions perfectly.

Isaiah Thomas scored 16 points to go with team-high nine assists. Thomas did most of his damage in the pick-and-roll and was more of a playmaker than scorer on Friday's night. What is more, he seemed a little bit more engaged in the game and was definitely pumped up which is a good sign for the Celtics.

Jae Crowder had 16 points on his own, adding six boards and three assists as well. Solid night for Jae who got 16 points in second straight game, tying his playoffs record once again.

Avery Bradley flirted with a triple-double a little bit, finishing the night with 15 points (4/6 from downtown), seven rebounds and seven dimes. What a great night for Avery who not only did his best on the offensive end of the floor but also did great job on Jimmy Butler. Bulls' leader got 14 points on 21 shots.

Terry Rozier came off the bench and gave some strong minutes for the Celtics as well as other Boston reserbes. Rozier scored 11 points, including three 3-pointers and one big dunk in the fourth quarter. With him on the floor, Celtics were plus-19 and only Bradley (plus-22) and Crowder (plus-23) had better plus/minus score.
