Smart scored 26 points (8-16 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 5-5 FT) to go with five rebounds and two steals in 28 minutes during the Celtics' 119-114 loss to the Magic on Sunday. Smart's 26 points matched a career-high, and his five triples were a season-high. This was the first time all season Smart has gone the whole game without an assist. However, he had himself a fantastic performance, competing hard and putting up stats to the final whistle. Smart has hit eight threes in the last two contests, and he has scored in double figures in four of the last five. Though Smart typically doesn't dish many assists or put up eye-popping numbers, he still contributes in every category, and his best days are undoubtedly still ahead of him.
Smart had 16 points (5-9 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-5 FT), four assists, three steals, two rebounds, and one block in 28 minutes during the Celtics' 113-94 win over the Magic on Friday. Smart bounced back from an 0-for-5 performance on Wednesday against the Nuggets, scoring efficiently and contributing in every category. Smart continues to fall short of 30 minutes most nights. However, there's reason to believe he can improve on his modest averages thus far if he can manage to find some consistency.
Smart had four points (0-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT) with three assists, three steals and two rebounds in a win against Denver on Wednesday. Smart couldn't get a shot to fall from the field on Wednesday, but he was able to contribute in other areas. It didn't help either that Avery Bradley was on fire and chucked up 13 three-pointers. Smart will continue to be a decent contributor for Boston off of the bench in a multitude of statistical categories.
Smart provided 16 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four steals, three rebounds, two assists, and a block across 29 minutes in Sunday's 112-92 win over the 76ers. After combining for 14 points on 5-for-17 shooting over the past two games, Smart's shot got back on track Sunday, with his marksmanship from long range especially impressive. He's still only shooting 34.4 percent for the season and 21.5 percent from three-point range, so until he emerges as more of an offensive force, he'll be difficult to trust for consistent scoring outputs.
Smart had 20 points (8-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, three assists, and two steals in 39 minutes during the Celtics' 118-113 overtime loss against the Mavericks on Monday. Smart is churning out 10.8 points on 40 percent shooting to go with 7.2 rebounds, 4.4 assists, 1.2 steals, and 0.6 blocks across 30 minutes per appearance over the Celtics' last five games. Though the 21-year-old guard is coming off the bench, he is still earning ample playing time, and is starting to put up some impressive numbers as well. Smart has missed half of his team's games, but so long as he remains healthy going forward, he stands to have plenty of opportunities to post gaudy stat totals the rest of the year.
