Marcus Smart scored five points with eight assists, five rebounds, one 3-pointer, two steals and one block in Wednesday’s season finale against the Bucks.
Smart played 28 minutes and helped to lock up the No. 1 seed for the Celtics. Smart played 79 games this season and took a significant leap forward as a fantasy player, finishing inside the top-120 after being outside the top-170 a season ago. He averaged 10.6 points, 1.2 treys, 3.9 boards, 4.6 assists and 1.6 steals while shooting 36% from the floor. Smart has made immense growth as a playmaker and secondary ball handler, and he remains a tenacious defender, but he’ll need to improve his shooting if he wants to take the next step in fantasy and reality.
