Following last night’s win against the Cavaliers, All-Star center Al Horford was very flattering of the opponent’s fans.
Cleveland fans are great! Very impressed with the way they support their team.

Horford was teammates at the University of Florida for two seasons with another center in the association who’s not quite so fond of the city or its fans.
The Cavaliers, despite the third-worst record in the league are currently averaging just under 17,000 fans per game, good enough for 18th in the league, ahead of Atlanta’s 25th-ranked fans by nearly 2,500 fans per night. The team was celebrating “Anderson Varejao Wig Night” last night, which may have helped the turnout.
