Marcus Smart had successfully limited the selling that was a big part of his college game, but it's crept back in lately.

Marcus Smart's "I'm not dirty" defense would have more cred if he said exactly what he was trying to do, bolo-punching Bonner in the boys.

Still looks like Kelly O is off overall. Anderson tried to bait Smart earlier by hanging all over him. IMHO. #MarcusSmart #celtics
