Smart is shooting just 37 percent from the floor this season — and that’s a career high. Among the 355 NBA players with at least 100 field goal attempts this season, Smart ranks 338th in field goal percentage. Despite occasional hot streaks, Smart is shooting just 28.5 percent beyond the 3-point arc. The key for Smart might simply be better recognition of where his best shots come from. The Celtics love using his size and toughness to take advantage of opposing guards in the post. Smart ranks in the 82nd percentile among all league players while averaging 1.024 points per play in post-up situations, according to Synergy Sports data. Only Al Horford has more post-up plays finished than Smart among Celtics players this season.

The Celtics have talked intermittently with the Clippers about Blake Griffin, per several league sources, but a deal is extremely unlikely. Griffin will be a free agent this summer, and Boston would probably need official permission to talk to him about his future — a concession Minnesota allowed Cleveland before the Kevin Love trade. The Clips would ask for a bounty, starting with Jae Crowder and one of the Avery Bradley/Marcus Smart duo, plus picks, per league sources.

Marcus Smart said he didn’t remember putting the hole in the Washington Wizards’ locker room wall yesterday after the Boston Celtics dropped a painful 123-108 loss. Still, he said it with a smile that perhaps suggested otherwise. “I know that it wasn’t there when I came in,” he said. “I don’t know. I guess I was. I don’t remember it, but if there was a hole in the wall, I guess I put it there. I’ll take that one.”
