Marcus Smart was mostly focused on defense in Sunday's win over the Blazers, scoring three points (0-for-4 shooting) in 33 minutes but chipping in five rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks.
Smart had to put his attention on being Damian Lillard's speed bump and the Celtics did pull out the victory, so it all worked out. His ability to grab complementary stats has always been Smart's bread and butter, so bad offensive games don't sting as badly with him as they do for more one-dimensional players. Expect better in the next one with middle-round numbers by the end of the Orlando bubble schedule.
