There are great plays and then there are statement plays, the latter of which was made by Al Horford during the Boston Celtics' Wednesday night date with the Toronto Raptors by dunking HARD over Serge Ibaka.
And then the staredown!
With Boston leading by just four in the waning minutes of the third quarter, Gordon Hayward fed Horford on a no-look pass off of a drive that resulted in Horford asserting his dominance over the three-time NBA All-Defensive Team player.
That dunk added another score to what was already an impressive first three quarters for Horford, as he finished the third frame with 17 points.
The staredown at the end of the dunk for good measure showed Horford's intensity and his desire to prove that his team isn't going down easy on their home court.
