Marcus Smart 19 Points Full Highlights (5/3/2018)

My burning, irrational hatred for Marcus Smart does not allow me to acknowledge when he has a good game. Instead, I am compelled to point out his deficiencies: how he had the same amount of assists as turnovers (3), how he chucked ten three-pointers despite being one of the worst high-volume three-point shooters in the…

Marcus Smart 20 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (3/11/2018)

It causes me physical pain when Marcus Smart has a good game in defiance of all the mean things I’ve written about him. Actual physical pain, akin to having your chest skewered with knives. Celtics fans will tell me all about his defense and that’s easy for me to ignore since there are no box-score…

Marcus Smart 22 Points/8 Assists Full Highlights (1/23/2018)

Marcus Smart missed a buzzer-beating three-pointer as time expired, but if the Lakers could actually shoot free throws (Josh Fart missed a pair with nineteen seconds left and Kentavious Callbrick-Poop missed a pair with five seconds left), Smart wouldn’t have even had a chance to take (and miss) the game-winner, so I consider this one…

Marcus Smart 23 Points/6 Threes/6 Assists Full Highlights (11/27/2017)

There aren’t enough intensifying adjectives to describe how poorly Marcus Smart is shooting the ball this season. And I know this topic has been beaten into the ground already, but I don’t care. 40 percent shooting is probably out of the question for him as a player, this year or any year, but dipping below…

Marcus Smart Career High 27 Points/7 Assists/7 Threes Full Highlights (5/21/2017)

This wasn’t supposed to happen. The guy who shot 28% from three (on over 330 attempts) during the regular season wasn’t supposed to go seven of ten from the threezone in a playoff game. Not only that, but, if we’re being honest here, this is the best game of Marcus Smart’s NBA career, and he…

Marcus Smart 18 Points/5 Threes/7 Assists/6 Steals Full Highlights (4/6/2017)

At this point, there is nothing you can say or do to Marcus Smart that will make him stop taking so many threes. That’s just who he is. You want all the other stuff he brings to the table, then you deal with the big pile of bricks. It does no good to complain about…

Marcus Smart 21 Points Full Highlights (3/6/2017)

Marcus Smart has had a rough couple of games when it comes to shooting the deep ball, but then again, he’s had a rough season (or even a rough career) shooting the deep ball, so the fact that he’s made five out of his last thirty three-pointers shouldn’t be surprising. He did get a haircut…

Marcus Smart 21 Points/5 Assists/8 Steals Full Highlights (2/15/2017)

This game is like unlimited ammunition for Celtics fans. Nobody on the internet will ever again be able to say an unkind word about Marcus Smart, least of all me. “Look how much blue-collar HUSTLE is on display here!” says the enthused Celtics fan. “Look how much BOSTON GRIT Maaahcus Smaaht has! His impact on…

Marcus Smart 18 Points/5 Assists Full Highlights (2/9/2017)

I have relentlessly hated on Marcus Smart since he got into the league. Something about his misplaced swagger and his poor shooting just makes him an easy target for someone like me who likes to write mean words on the internet. It also annoys me how Celtics fans claim that Smart is a vital component…
