Al Horford is a few good things a he's a very good perimeter shooter beat he's very good on the screen and roll pick and roll. And so it is as far spacing the floor. And that helps Isiah Thomas and and the rest of this team do what it does it mean and the style of play that they play under

In a perfect position to get out large bid. But while these are all three winnable games there also lose the ball I I don't listen it's not out of the question that market can't commit here beat Providence today or that they can't lose at saint John's I think they'll take care of business at home against DePaul.
