Marcus Smart keeps working on improved 3-point shot

Photo by Fernando Medina/NBAE via Every season it’s a storyline, but yes, Marcus Smart is still working on his 3-point shot, and he has shown steady progress with it over the years. For the entirety of Marcus Smart’s NBA career, the guard’s 3-point shooting has been an ongoing storyline. There’s always been hope that Smart could resurrect his outside shot that has waxed and waned from year to year. But could this be the season that Smart shoots 40 percent from beyond the arc for the first time? Smart believes the work he has done in the offseason will continue to improve his...

Marcus Smart sees a more ‘grown up’ version of the Celtics this season

Marcus Smart sees a more ‘grown up’ version of the Celtics this season

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports It seems the Celtics have learned from last year’s 2018-19 season to grow as leaders on and off the court. Believe it or not, but Marcus Smart is the elder statesman for this Boston Celtics team. The longest tenured Celtic, Smart, who is now in his sixth NBA season, has fully taken over team leadership duties for a squad that certainly lacked that presence a season ago. But the most notable change for this team compared to last season is that Smart won’t have to lead the charge by himself. While the C’s have only gone through training camp and played...

Ten takeaways from Boston’s blowout win in Orlando

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports The Celtics dominated the Magic from the jump and never backed off. 1. Jayson Tatum’s shot selection looks much improved. He’s either driving the ball or taking open three-pointers. After the game he said he won’t stop taking mid-range shots and that Kobe Bryant didn’t teach him bad habits. But whether it is conscious or not, Tatum looks like he’s taking better shots. He just makes it look so easy pic.twitter.com/Tx26Ks89U3— Boston Celtics (@celtics) October 11, 2019 2.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Romeo Langford played his first minutes, Daniel Theis got the start, and the Jayward Trio looked great. 1st half thoughts: Grant Williams told Abby Chin in his pre-game interview that the Celtics needed to bring the defensive intensity and offensive pacing that they didn’t have against the Hornets. With Marcus Smart and Daniel Theis in the starting lineup, Boston won the first quarter 35-11, playing a near-perfect game for the first eleven minutes (Robert Williams and Semi Ojeleye gave up some silly fouls in the last 60 seconds).

Romeo Langford is here

Tear a bit of the gift wrap off and you’ll get an even better peek. That’s Romeo Langford. The Celtics’ 2019 rookie class has generated plenty of buzz. Grant Williams could challenge Marcus Smart this season in winning plays and Tommy points. Carsen Edwards looks more like a Sixth Man of the Year candidate than rookie. Tacko Fall and Javonte Green have captured the imagination and early year enthusiasm of a...

Marcus Smart, Celtics trusting Brad Stevens ‘more this year than ever’

Brad Stevens was an unproven commodity when Danny Ainge hired him to man the Boston Celtics bench in 2013.

The Boston Celtics will look very different at the center position without a versatile big that can stretch the floor. Upon trading backup Aron Baynes, the Celtics turned to Enes Kanter as their next signing, but the double-double threat isn’t known for his shooting ability as former center Al Horford has been throughout his career.
