According to Avery Bradley, several Boston players were “getting into it” and screaming at each other in the locker room at halftime of Game 5 on Wednesday. Bradley told MassLive.com that infighting would have boiled over onto the court in the second half had veteran Al Horford not stepped in.

“Al stopped it like that,” Bradley said while snapping his fingers. “He’s very vocal. He’s a guy that helps us all keep our composure. We were kind of falling apart at halftime, and Al kept everyone together and told us that if we continue to play that way in the third quarter, we have a chance to win the game.”
