All season Sixers fans have considered Al Horford to be an overpaid, over-the-hill mistake signing for $109 million.
But he more than paid for his free agency contract last night:
The Sixers outscored the Kings by 41 points when Horford was on the floor in a 125-108 win that snapped a nine-game road losing streak.
Dating to the 2000-01 season, it’s tied for the best single-game plus-minus by a Sixer — Andre Iguodala was also a plus-41 on Feb. 20, 2008 in a 40-point win over the Knicks.
Horford, though, apparently does not pay a great deal of attention to his plus-minus.
“It usually equals that you’re going to get a win,” he told reporters. “That’s what we did tonight. I still don’t understand the whole plus-minus thing. I’m just glad that we won.”
