Feb. 27 6:32 PM PT7:32 PM MT8:32 PM CT9:32 PM ET2:32 GMT10:32 7:32 PM MST9:32 PM EST6:32 UAE (+1)03:3221:32 ET8:32 PM CTNaN:� - Al Horford scored six points Monday, going 3 of 9 from the field, as the Boston Celtics fell to the Atlanta Hawks 114-98. Horford pulled down six rebounds and dished out five assists, tallying a plus-minus of +1 in his 27:33 on the floor. He added one block and one steal.
Analysis: It's the fourth straight game in which the former Hawk has failed to score in double figures, and he's shooting a poor 31.4 percent during the slump. Horford's rebounds and assists have also dropped off during that time frame, further lessening his fantasy appeal.

Analysis: The versatile center did record nine rebounds and five assists, and his track record suggests he'll bounce back offensively at some point. It's a concern for now, though, as Horford has shot 30.8 percent while averaging a paltry 6.3 points over his last three outings.

Analysis: The low assist total is perhaps the most disappointing after Horford dished out six or more in each of his five previous games. Boston's starting center still continues to consistently deliver well-rounded numbers, having averaged 14.3 points, 6.1 rebounds and 5.7 assists over his last seven contests.
