Al Horford is a key factor in the Celtics first round series against the Bulls. Horford is virtually the only good big man on the Celts roster and with Chicago crushing Boston on the glass, Horford has needed to play big minutes. Aside from a very poor game two, Horford has cleared this line with ease and with the series hanging in the balance, should do the same in game 5.
Returning from his knee injury in game 4, Rudy Gobert provided a huge boost to the Jazz, getting 15 points and 13 rebounds in just 25 minutes of game time, helping the Jazz to a win, tying up the series. As the season wore on Gobert got better and better, increasing his scoring by almost 4ppg after the all-star break. Considering how quickly Gobert recovered from the injury, it is unlikely that his minutes will be severely restricted, particularly with the importance of this game 5. We expect Gobert to play 32+ minutes and easily clear this line.
