Celtics' Marcus Smart: Starts, scores eight in loss to Philly
Smart posted eight points (3-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight assists, six rebounds and two steals from 35 minutes in Sunday's 105-99 loss at Philadelphia.
Sunday marked Smart's second straight start due to Isaiah Thomas' (knee) absence. Unfortunately, Smart's shooting woes continued. He's now shooting 32 percent over 10 games in March. For these past two starts, he's shot six for 26. Thomas is hoping to return Monday, meaning Smart will probably return to the bench and play roughly 25-29 minutes versus Washington.
