Smart Saves the Day

  • 2 years ago
Marcus Smart saves the day in Celtics 109-97 win over Toronto Raptors, helping them stay above .500 at 11-10. Smart finished with a team-high 21 points, including 4-for-10 3-point shooting, plus six assists. The Garden Report crew discuss how Smart has stepped up to help the Celtics, and if he should be relied on to carry this team at the end of the game.

"It’s gonna take time — you have to learn, you have to adjust," says the Celtics starting point guard during postgame. “Ime (Udoka is) a different coach than what we were used to for those years. He brings a different method, mentality to this team. We knew coming in it wasn’t going to be easy. We were going to have ups and downs, especially learning a new system and way to play, and getting re-familiarized with his coaching staff. We’ve been doing a great job. It’s not going to be easy.”

Early in the season, Smart publicly call out teammates Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Browm for not doing enough to move the ball earlier this season.
