Marcus Smart’s Imprint Remains With the Boston Celtics

The Boston Celtics need to focus on getting back to their winning ways at home. After beginning the season with a record-setting 20 straight wins at TD Garden, the Celtics have dropped three of their last five games in Boston. Their last home loss was a debacle as the Celtics fell to the short-handed Los Angeles Lakers in embarrassing fashion, losing 114-105 on Thursday, February 1.

Boston gets back into action on Sunday when it hosts the Memphis Grizzlies. Much of the focus, however, will be on the return of Marcus Smart, the veteran point guard who spent the first nine years of his NBA career as a fan favorite with the Celtics. Although Smart won’t be in action (injured finger), he’ll draw plenty of attention from both the players and the fans.

Marcus Smart Started Boston’s Defensive Foundation, Says Joe Mazzulla

The Celtics selected Smart in the first round of the 2014 NBA Draft. He played nine seasons in Boston and was the heart and soul of the team with his defense-first mindset and his all-out effort on the court.
