Celtics' Stevens on Smart at PG: 'Needs to do what he does best'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/7/2015) Celtics coach Brad Stevens discussed the work of rookie Marcus Smart at the point guard position before Saturday's game against the Bucks.

"He just needs to do what he does best," Stevens said. "I don't want him to do something that the defense isn't giving to him."

Smart has started each of the team's last three games -- all wins -- averaging 6.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, 6.3 assists, 2.3 steals and 38.3 minutes per game, but he's shot just 28.6 percent from the field during that stretch.

The Celtics are 6 1/2-point underdogs in Milwaukee Saturady.


Still waiting for Marcus Smart to break out


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2015) Celtics guard Marcus Smart hasn't made the kind of impact we expected since the Rajon Rondo trade in late December, but that could be changing with a recent move into the starting lineup.

Smart scored in double figures just five times in his first 22 games, and three of those were starts. However, he has been showing real signs of figuring thing out at the NBA level. His scoring lately hasn't been great, but he is averaging 5.4 assists per game over five games before Tuesdays, in just 24.9 minutes per game. Though he had just three in Tuesday's start, he did fill up the box score, adding four rebounds and two steals, and added 13 points on just nine shots.

Smart is still very much learning how to score in the NBA, however he made strides in January overall, especially with his 3-point shot and playmaking. He shot 42.4 percent on 59 3-pointers, and dished out nearly six assists per-36 minutes. With the Celtics seemingly ready to give up on Evan Turner as the point guard, Smart should see a large role moving forward, and he might finally start to make an impact for Fantasy owners. There are plenty of viable point guards available on the waiver wire, but few have the upside Smart does, so make him a priority if you are looking for a stash. 


Celtics PG Marcus Smart scores 13, plays through injury Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2015) Celtics point guard Marcus Smart scored 13 points on 3 of 9 shooting, including 2 of 7 shooting from three-point range, in his team's 108-97 win over the Knicks Tuesday.

Smart suffered an ankle injury during the game and headed to the locker room to be examined, but he was able to quickly return to action and close out the game. He also racked up four rebounds, three assists and two steals in 37 minutes. Provided his ankle is good to go after a night of rest, Smart will face the Nuggets Wednesday.

Marcus Smart being groomed for leadership role with Celtics


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2015) Celtics management remains hopeful that rookie point guard Marcus Smart will step forward and assume a leadership role with the team, reports the Boston Herald.

"He's doing a good job of playing well, of handling success and adversity. Those are all precursors to being a leader," coach Brad Stevens said. "When you're a young person you have to earn that kind of respect with your approach. It's not even your play, it's your approach."

The Celtics selected Smart No.6 overall pick in this year's draft. They traded start point guard Rajon Rondo for Jameer Nelson, then traded Nelson to Denver for Nate Robinson. Robinson was bought out by the Celtics, which opened the door again for Smart to emerge as a leader. Smart is averaging 6.7 points, 2.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game this season. He's also shooting 39.6 percent from the field and 36.5 percent from 3-point territory through 26 games.
