Al Horford, Celtics see shot at Finals slip away

Al Horford conceded after the fact that home court advantage in the NBA playoffs only matters when the shots fall.

The Celtics shot 34.1 percent from the floor and a dismal 7-of-39 from behind the 3-point stripe in last night’s 87-79 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final at the TD Garden.

The Celtics run of 10 straight home wins in the playoffs was undermined by open jump shots that rimmed out and makeable layups that wouldn’t drop.
