Who do you compare your game to in the NBA? Tyler Dorsey: I can’t give someone specific. I watch guys that have a dog mentality. Guys like Russell Westbrook, Marcus Smart, [Kentavious] Caldwell-Pope. Guys like that have a work ethic, guys that go hard every possession. They’re going hard. I like guys that go hard. Do you have any other workouts? Tyler Dorsey: The only solidified workout that I have is Utah on Sunday.

USA Basketball chairman Jerry Colangelo told the Globe on Thursday that Smart, who just completed his second NBA season, will be invited to join the Select Team for a second time. Team USA will begin training for the 2016 Rio Olympics in July in Las Vegas and Smart is expected to be among the Select members. “He did well [last time],” Colangelo said. “He’s part of the program. We’d like to have him back. He’s a good young player.”
Storyline: USA Basketball
Marcus Smart’s flop during the final minutes of Game 3 Friday night was egregious enough to inspire a wrestling meme on the internet, but the Boston Celtics guard had a simple explanation for what happened. “I was just trying to make winning plays for my team,” Smart said after practice Saturday. Unfortunately for Smart, the referees did not fall for the acting job, and the NBA later hit the guard with a $5,000 fine. The Celtics did hold on for a 111-103 victory to cut their series deficit against the Atlanta Hawks to 2-1.
