Marcus Smart turns in 31-point gem for Celtics in start

Boston Celtics point guard Marcus Smart scored 31 points (10-of-20 field goals, 6-of-8 free throws) with 4 rebounds, 3 assists, 4 steals, 5 3-pointers, and 3 turnovers in 45.9 minutes of a 141-133 double-overtime win over the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday.

What It Means:

Following three straight single-digit scoring efforts, Smart was outstanding in a spot-start for Jaylen Brown (calf). He's shooting 46.0 percent from the field in February after making just 36.2 percent of his attempts in December and January. Smart and the Celtics will visit the Minnesota Timberwolves on February 21 in their first game out of the All-Star break.

Smart scored 49.3 FanDuel points on Thursday, his third-highest total of the season. numberFire's models project him for 11.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.7 triples per game over the rest of the season.
