Article Summary:

For Celtics guard Marcus Smart, the first round of the 2021 NBA playoffs felt like a microcosm of everything good and bad he brings to Boston. Over the final two games of the series the former Oklahoma State star went 9-of-29 from the field and struggled mightily from distance.

While playing a significant offensive role given Jaylen Brown’s injury and Kemba Walker missing games 4 and 5, Smart averaged over 36 minutes per game while putting up 17.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 6 assists in the series.

YouTube videographer Tomasz Kordylewski put together the best of Smart’s playoff performances in the Boston 4-1 loss to Brooklyn:

Despite questionable shot selection in the final two games of the series, Smart did what he always does in bringing maximum effort and energy on both ends for the short-handed Celtics.
