I love Marcus Smart. Always have, always will. And he’s a modern point guard, so stop with all the “Need a point guard stuff.”, especially when you don’t even know what that means in today’s game.
But 4-of-15 and 1-of-9 doesn’t cut it. Just a brutal game from him. – 11:59 PM
Justin Garcia @tmjgarcia
PJ Tucker laughing at Marcus Smart being the victim of flopping is all the vibes I need rn – 11:27 PM
Frank Madden @fmaddenNBA
Marcus Smart complaining about a guy drawing a charge by sliding under a player going up for a dunk is pretty rich. – 11:24 PM
Dalton Johnson @DaltonJ_Johnson
That 3 from Marcus Smart was hilarious – 11:10 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
I like to complain about Bam’s moving screens but Marcus Smart is running around putting people in sleeper holds. – 11:00 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Celtics finally back to taking advantage of Lowry as the low man with quick cuts to draw Bam up and one-time oop it to Rob Williams, who can grab it out of the sky where nobody else can go. – 10:27 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
I swear the Celtics continually try to throw lobs higher and higher to see if Robert Williams can come down with it. He somehow does every time. – 10:27 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Four fouls on PJ Tucker.
Marcus Smart gets one to fall and has a chance at a four-point play. Great pass by Al Horford. – 10:12 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Marcus Smart is clearly hurting, but Boston needs more from him. – 10:11 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Four fouls on Grant Williams.
Rob Williams back in. – 10:10 PM
Jared Weiss @JaredWeissNBA
Grant Williams starts for Rob Williams as Rob returns to the bench a minute into the half from stretching/going to the bathroom/whatever they say next – 10:08 PM
Gary Washburn @GwashburnGlobe
Robert Williams has returned to the bench. #Celtics #Heat10:07 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Grant Williams is again starting the third quarter in place of Robert Williams. Same as Game 5. – 10:06 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Robert Williams is just an incredible rim protector. Jimmy Butler had Brown beaten. Williams comes over and changes the layup…. – 9:46 PM
Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
Marcus Smart is telling all of the Celtics to calm down after that foul call against Derrick White.
Zach Zarba just warned both teams about complaining. But that was a very soft foul call against White. – 9:41 PM

Both Rob Williams and Jimmy Butler stayed in after the timeout. Both looked a little worse for wear before the timeout. – 9:09 PM
Tom Westerholm @Tom_NBA
Rob Williams just affected or blocked four shots on one possession, which 1) wow Rob 2) the Heat got four shots on one possession (and still have the ball). – 9:07 PM

Al Horford and Robert Williams III are the first pair of Celtics teammates to each have 10 blocks in a single series since Kevin Garnett and Kendrick Perkins in 2008 1st Round.
Miami has shot only 30% from the field when Horford and Williams are both on the floor in this series. – 9:34 AM
