Celtics' Marcus Smart: Inefficient in season-ending loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart generated 20 points (8-22 FG, 4-13 3Pt), eight rebounds, two assists and two steals in Sunday's 125-113 season-ending Eastern Conference finals Game 6 loss.

Smart's 22 field-goal attempts were a new career playoff high, and he was a big part of both Boston's comeback early in the fourth quarter and demise later in the quarter. Early in the fourth, Smart and Jaylen Brown provided fierce ball pressure that led to easy fast-break buckets. But late in the game, Smart was one of a few Celtics who took ill-advised three-point attempts that derailed the team's offense. For reasons unknown, crunch time saw the Celtics settle for lazy jumpers instead of attacking the basket -- the strategy that had helped them gain the lead. They'll now shift their focus to the 2020-21 season. Smart has two more years remaining on his contract with the Celtics.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Impressive in Game 3 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart manufactured 20 points (5-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 10-10 FT), six assists and four boards over 36 minutes in Saturday's Eastern Conference finals Game 3 win over the Heat.

In addition to his efficient offensive effort, Smart also played significant minutes guarding Heat star Goran Dragic. Smart's aggressive ball pressure led to Dragic shooting only 2-for-10 from the field, a sharp decline after Dragic's impressive outings in Games 1 and 2. But maybe Smart's most impressive feat was his perfection from the free throw line. Smart, a career 77.5 percent free throw shooter, drained all 10 of his attempts from the charity stripe. He was also a key part of a Celtics offense that decided to focus more on ball movement and rugged drives to the basket. The new approach helped Boston improve versus Miami's unique zone defense. Smart and his Celtics teammates must now wait until Wednesday for the pivotal Game 4 contest. Miami still leads the series two games to one.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Scores 26 in Game 1 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart generated 26 points (9-18 FG, 6-13 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds and one assist in Tuesday's 117-114 overtime Game 1 loss to the Heat.

Smart was one point shy of tying his career playoff scoring high. The versatile wing was particularly hot in the first half and, frankly, deserved the ball more in the fourth quarter. He's now hit 32 three-pointers in a 12 bubble playoff games (2.7 per game). The only dilemma with Smart's strong play is the bench lacks scoring punch now that Smart is starting for an injured Gordon Hayward (ankle). Smart and his Boston teammates will look to turn things around in Game 2 on Thursday.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Triple-double in double-OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart had 23 points (7-15 FG, 6-11 3PT, 3-3 FT), 11 rebounds and 10 assists in Wednesday's Game 6 double-overtime loss to Toronto.

Smart was one of three Celtics to play at least 50 minutes in a game that will go down as one of the most memorable of the entire season. Smart was once again hot from beyond the arc, drilling six threes for the second time in the series. Through six games, he's 22-of-51 from deep (43.1 percent).

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Stuffs stat sheet in Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart finished with eight points (2-8 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-5 FT), eight rebounds, five assists, a steal and a block in 41 minutes during Saturday's Game 4 loss against the Raptors.

Smart has been regressing as the series against the Raptors has progressed, maxing out at 21 points in Game 1 but scoring under 12 points in each of the last two contests. He still has decent fantasy value due to his ability to stuff the stat sheet with ease, but his value will undoubtedly take a hit if he can't score as he did in the first two games of the series.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Catches fire from deep in Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart registered 19 points (6-13 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, two blocks and an assist in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 102-99 Game 2 win over the Raptors.

Smart has gone a combined 11-for-20 from three-point range in the first two games of the Eastern Conference Semifinals so far, and it's clear the Raptors have not had answers for his perimeter offense. Smart is bound to regress at some point since he's never made more than 37 percent of his threes in any of his six NBA seasons, but there's no question the electric guard is making quite an impact in the first two games of the series.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Hot from three in Game 1 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart had 21 points (6-10 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), six rebounds and four assists in Sunday's Game 1 win over Toronto.

Boston shot 44 percent from three as a team and Smart's five makes led the way. Smart has incrementally improved as an outside shooter over the last few years, and he's coming off of a regular season in which he hit 34.7 percent of his attempts, the second-highest mark of his career.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Starting for injured Hayward
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart will start for the injured Gordon Hayward (ankle) during Wednesday's Game 2 against the 76ers, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

As expected, Smart will get the nod and could end up garnering more playmaking opportunities due to the loss of Hayward for roughly a month. Across 40 starts this season, Smart is averaging 14.3 points, 5.0 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 2.2 combined steals-plus-blocks in 34.4 minutes.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Scores two points, plays 32 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart eked out two points (0-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound, one assist and two steals in Monday's 109-101 Game 1 win over the 76ers.

Smart contributed to the Boston win with great help defense, quick ball movement, and only one turnover. Unfortunately, most of the versatile defender's effort doesn't show up in the box score. Smart often switched on defense to guard Philly bigs such as Al Horford and Tobias Harris. And he helped Daniel Theis a few times by pestering Joel Embiid. Smart might shift to the starting lineup for Wednesday's Game 2 contest if Gordon Hayward (ankle) is forced to sit out.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart will be rested for Thursday's game against the Wizards.

Smart is one of six key players sitting out for the seeding game finale. In the backcourt, Brad Wanamaker, Javonte Green, Carsen Edwards and Romeo Langford should see plenty of action.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Quiet in Friday's victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart totaled just two points (1-8 FG, 0-5 3Pt), five assists, two rebounds and two steals in Friday's 122-120 victory over Toronto.

Smart shifted back to the bench with Kemba Walker back in action. The former played only 24 minutes as the Celtics took control of the game early. His production has been wildly inconsistent thus far and that is really nothing new when analyzing his career to this point. It all typically balances out in the end and Smart should continue to put up top-75 numbers at the very worst.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Joins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart is in the starting lineup Wednesday against the Nets.

The 26-year-old came off the bench for the first three games in the bubble, but he'll enter the starting lineup with Kemba Walker resting Wednesday. Smart is averaging 9.7 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 2.0 steals in 27.0 minutes since the season resumed.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Fouls out in third quarter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart eked out three points (0-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FG), one rebound and two steals over 16 minutes in Tuesday's 112-106 loss to Miami.

The defensive-minded Smart fouled out with just under four minutes remaining in the third quarter. The C's seemed distracted by a few bad calls and got outhustled by the Heat. After opening bubble play with a great game versus Milwaukee, Smart has answered with back-to-back three-point stinkers. After starting the last 11 games before the sports stoppage, Smart has come off the bench for all three Orlando bubble games. Boston has little time to grouse as it faces the Nets on Wednesday night for the second of a back-to-back.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Leads C's in scoring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart generated 23 points (7-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-8 FT), four rebounds, an assist and a steal over 32 minutes in Friday's 119-112 loss to Milwaukee in Orlando.

Smart came off the bench but played starter's minutes, which will probably continue as long as Kemba Walker (knee) is on a minutes restriction. Smart's 23 points led Boston in scoring on a night when Walker played only 19 minutes and Jayson Tatum shot 2-for-18. The versatile Smart also saw a lot of time guarding Giannis Antetokounmpo on the defensive end. Near the end of the game, it looked like Smart briefly forced Giannis to foul out via a charge, until the call was overturned on replay. Look for Smart to continue to play a big role throughout most of these Orlando regular-season games.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Not playing in last scrimmage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart will not play in the Celtics' final scrimmage Tuesday, Tom Westerholm of The Springfield Republican reports.

Smart is being rested before Friday's opener against the Bucks. Gordon Hayward, Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown, Kemba Walker, Daniel Theis and Enes Kanter are also out.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Delivers 10 points from bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart produced 10 points (5-5 FG), five rebounds and four assists across 23 minutes in Sunday's 117-103 win over the Suns in Orlando.

Smart is much more than a placeholder for Boston's backcourt. He would be a likely starter for a lesser team, and he's demonstrated time and again how capable he is when the Celtics are ailing in their guard corps. He can also play the three depending on the matchup. His fantasy impact can be challenging to predict, but Smart's 32.5 minutes per game pre-coronavirus is a good indicator of his importance to the Celtics.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Starts in scrimmage for Walker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart produced eight points (3-8 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists and three steals in Friday's Orlando bubble scrimmage loss to Oklahoma City.

Love him or hate him, MAH-cus isn't going to allow 0-for-4 from behind the arc prevent him from attempting a fifth three-pointer. Smart drew the start at point guard as Boston is resting Kemba Walker and his sore knee. Expect Boston to sit Walker a few times during the Orlando play-in games to make sure he's fresh for the playoffs. That will mean more ball-handling responsibilities for Smart, who already averaged 4.8 dimes and 32.5 minutes per game before the sports stoppage.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Cleared of coronavirus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smart has been cleared from the coronavirus since Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Smart took to his personal Twitter account Sunday night to announce that he was cleared by the Massachusetts Department of Health on Friday. This is, of course, great news for Smart and the Celtics, but it remains very much unclear when we may see the defensive-minded guard on the court again.

Celtics' Marcus Smart: Recovering well from coronavirus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Celtics coach Brad Stevens relayed Friday that Smart (illness) is doing well following his positive test for the coronavirus a week earlier, Tim Bontemps of ESPN.com reports. "Great. He's great. Great spirits. Joking as always," Stevens said.

Smart is one of five known NBA players to have tested positive for COVID-19, with the first three of those players whose identities were revealed (Rudy Gobert, Donovan Mitchell and Christian Wood) all having since received full clearance from doctors. Based on Stevens' comments, Smart could receive clearance of his own within the next few days, seemingly putting him on track to be ready to play whenever the NBA resumes its season.
