Al Horford was replaced by Matisse Thybulle in the starting lineup for Game 2 and scored just 4 points (2-3 FG) with two rebounds and one block in 23 minutes in a 128-101 loss to the Celtics.
After Horford put up a dud as a starter in Game 1, head coach Brett Brown decided to roll with Thybulle in the starting lineup in Game 2. Horford still managed to play 23 minutes Wednesday night, but was not heavily involved in the game plan. He's hard to trust at this point, especially if he continues to come off the bench. Regardless, Horford is better than the effort he put forth tonight in Game 2, and should bounce back at least a little bit in Game 3.
