Al Horford shared his thoughts on coming off the bench for the Philadelphia 76ers, which will continue in the foreseeable future.

“It’s what the team needs right now, and that’s what we’re doing. I didn’t really give it much thought to be honest, I’m just refreshed being back and ready for the second half of the season. I’m playing similar to how I was playing before,” Horford said, via Philly Voice.

Horford came off the Sixers’ bench against the Los Angeles Clippers in the final game before the All-Star break. It was the first time since his rookie season that Horford didn’t start.
