Marcus Smart and Celtics bench find success against Bucks

Photo by Ashley Landis-Pool/ When Marcus Smart fills a bench role around a healthy array of starters, it transforms Boston’s second unit. A career night from Brad Wanamaker doesn’t hurt. Was the night a fluke or trend toward improvement? With Jayson Tatum laboring and Kemba Walker limited, the Celtics still mustered 112 points against a historic Bucks defense. In a perhaps unsustainable trend, Boston’s Marcus Smart and Brad Wanamaker bench tandem scored 37 points on 12-for-20 shooting. They outscored the Bucks’ second unit, while minutes from Grant Williams and Semi Ojeleye...
