Terry Rozier got a surprising boost of confidence from an injured Kyrie Irving as the Boston Celtics readied to make a postseason run without their two best stars on the roster. The Celtics were also still missing defensive ace and de facto point guard Marcus Smart, who was also out with an injury, putting Rozier […] The post Celtics’ Kyrie Irving helped boost Terry Rozier’s confidence after season-ending injury appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Summer film school: Why we pay Marcus Smart the big bucks

Welcome to another installment of Celtics Summer Film School. Yes, it’s still summer until September 22nd. Today, we’re going to take a look at a player I never talk about (read: a player I almost exclusively talk about): Marcus Smart. He just recently received a 4-year contract in restricted free agency after a couple weeks of drama, and for the foreseeable future, he will continue to be a Boston Celtic. Plenty has been made about Smart’s outside shooting, but not enough has been made of his inside shooting (which, in my opinion is a bigger area of concern). In terms of what he does...

The closers

Who starts? Who gets the most shots? Who averages the most minutes? Those are all great questions heading into the season, but when the chips are down, who will Brad Stevens turn to to close out games? With a minute left in Game 5 against the Sixers, the Celtics were down two and on the verge of a trip back to Philadelphia. Boston had a 3-0 stranglehold, but a loss in the Garden would shift momentum and maybe the balance of the series. Then Marcus Smart happened. In the span of sixty seconds, he tied up the game on an offensive rebound put back, generated a turnover on the defensive end to...

Celtics history discussion: Who are the most underrated Celtics of all time?

Celtics history discussion: Who are the most underrated Celtics of all time?

This discussion could go in any number of directions. Wait, what do you mean by “underrated?” (I don’t know, discuss it) Well, what are your parameters? (I don’t know, discuss it) Do you mean “underrated” by Celtics fans or by the league in general? Wait, I know, discuss it. I used Eric Williams in the picture because I feel like he was always a vital role player on those teams, but other guys got a lot more attention. A modern example might have been Marcus Smart but I think his recent contract situation highlighted to the league that he’s pretty valuable (just not valuable...

What 2017-18 Celtics lineups should be used in 2018-19

What 2017-18 Celtics lineups should be used in 2018-19

Boston ran out unplanned lineups with a large degree of success We all know the 2018 Boston Celtics season didn’t really go as planned. Gordon Hayward went down after playing a little more than five minutes. Kyrie Irving was shut down in mid-March. Daniel Theis was ruled out for the year shortly after. Marcus Smart missed over thirty games. A season that started with so much promise was scuttled before it really got off the ground. But a funny thing happened along the way. Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum blossomed. Terry Rozier excelled as a starter. Al Horford turned in a terrific...

Celtics history discussion: Who are the 5 best Celtics defenders of all time?

Which 5 Celtics were the best at stopping the opponents from scoring? You’ve seen enough debates over who the “best Celtics of all time” are (hint: there are too many to narrow down). I thought I’d put a different spin on it and let you debate who the best defenders of all time are. The parameters and analysis are both subjective, which means plenty of space for debate. There are recent examples (Al Horford, Marcus Smart, Avery Bradley), legendary names (Bill Russell), and everything in between (Kevin Garnett, Tony Allen, Dennis Johnson, Dave Cowens, Kevin McHale, Robert Parish)....

Celtics’ Jayson Tatum wouldn’t pressure Marcus Smart, but wanted him to come back

The Boston Celtics could have potentially missed out on Marcus Smart, a former restricted free agent with a price tag high enough to put the team waist-deep into the luxury tax. But even if he wanted Smart back, Jayson Tatum never pressured his teammate into coming back, letting it happen on its own. The possibility […] The post Celtics’ Jayson Tatum wouldn’t pressure Marcus Smart, but wanted him to come back appeared first on ClutchPoints.
