Smart produced 19 points (7-13 FG, 2-5 3PT, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, six assists and three steals across 42 minutes in Friday's 122-113 overtime victory over Milwaukee.
Smart has been a polarizing player for Celtics fans so far this season, but Friday's performance was easily his best since the season opener. His 19 points were good enough for a season high. He accumulated most of them during a scortching third-quarter stretch. It is unclear how long Jaylen Brown (hamstring) will be sidelined, but the veteran Smart will continue to have an opportunity to produce more than usual while he is.
