Was Marcus Smart a FACTOR in Celtics STRUGGLES vs Grizzlies?

3 months ago
MEMPHIS -- Marcus Smart was out with an injury but led the Grizzlies pre-game preparation for the Grizzlies before they took his former Celtics down to the last shot in Memphis.

“I think in the pre-game talk, he talked for 10 minutes straight,” Grizzlies forward Santi Aldama told CLNS Media. “He knows these guys. Obviously, he’s a guy that studies a lot of film, but he played there for 9-10 years and he knows them better than anybody, probably better than themselves. He gave us a lot of insight, especially guarding Jayson, who’s a great player, backs down smaller defenders into the post and then has all these tricks. So really trying to see how to guard them without fouling. Obviously, having Marcus himself is a privilege, but having him playing against Boston, I think that gave us a better chance at winning this game.”

CLNS Media's Bobby Manning reports from FedEx Forum in Memphis.
