|Marcus Smart: Dishes out nine dimes|
Smart had 17 points (4-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), nine assists, four rebounds, a steal and a block across 36 minutes in Wednesday’s win over the Knicks.
The Scoop: Smart was of just three Boston players that scored in double digits, and while he had a tough time shooting the rock here, the Oklahoma State product made up for it with his nine-assist total. Smart has established himself as one of the Celtics' main playmaking threats this season and the stats are backing him up -- he has dished out at least seven dimes in three of his last five contests.

|Marcus Smart: Records 10 assists|
Smart recorded six points (3-6 FG, 0-2 3PT), 10 assists, four rebounds, three steals and one block in 27 minutes during Friday’s 118-102 win over the Rockets.
The Scoop: Smart played the facilitator role Friday, dishing out double-digit assists for just the third time all season. The 27-year-old only scored six points, but he only took six shots -- a modest output when All-Stars Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum are doing the majority of the scoring. The seven-year veteran also dominated defensively, snatching three steals and one block, the third time this season he has had at least three steals and one block.

|Marcus Smart: Strong performance in loss|
Smart posted 17 points (5-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven assists, five rebounds, two steals and one block with no turnovers across 36 minutes during Wednesday’s 113-108 loss to the Mavericks.
The Scoop: The Celtics couldn't ask for much more from Smart, but he couldn't get enough help to secure a victory. Wednesday marked the Smart's first no-turnover game since March 19, and it's the first time he's made at least five free throws since March 17 -- the game he first re-joined the starting five. In his nine games since re-joining the starters, he's averaged 14.4 points, 5.2 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 35.3 minutes. He's struggled from the field, hitting just 40.6 percent of his shots.

|Marcus Smart: Goose egg from distance|
Smart scored 15 points (6-15 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding three rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 38 minutes in Monday’s loss to the Pelicans.
The Scoop: In the two games after making seven treys in a game, Smart has gone a combined 1-for-10 from distance. Overall, Smart has been a bit off since returning from a calf injury that cost him all of February and the first couple games of March. In his 11 games after the injury, Smart is averaging 12.9 points, 4.2 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 0.9 steals while shooting 40.7 percent from the floor and 36.2 percent from distance.
