Pope’s Pick: March 2

March 3, 2011 § Leave a comment

Al Horford, Atlanta Hawks

Horford played arguably the best game of his young career in Atlanta’s 83-80 comeback victory over the Bulls on Wednesday. The underrated Hawks star tied a career high with 31 points, pulled down 16 rebounds and connected on 13 of his 20 field goal attempts. He also scored the game’s biggest bucket, a running dunk down the middle of the lane to put his team up one with 29 seconds remaining.

Its doubtful the Hawks will make any noise in the playoffs this season, but they’re a bigger threat to the East’s elite than in the past due in large part to the vast improvement of Horford, who has quietly developed into his team’s best player.
