Marcus Smart's NBA play so far
He will eventually receive a lot of first-team defense votes; Smart is that good. Then again, everyone knew the rookie would be fine on that end of the floor. As advertised, his jump shot is skittish and his point guard skills need years of refining. But heís also fearless with the ball ó a willing shooter who always seems to hit shots in the fourth quarter that he missed in the first. Analytics types donít believe in a clutch stat, but Smart is one of those players who may eventually prove its existence.
