Alex Caruso just flew halfway across the half-court to slap a ball out of Marcus Smart’s hands in help defense, then scrambled all the way back to draw an offensive foul off Grant Williams, who was attempting to slow him down with a screen. Just bananas defensive vision. – 8:59 PM

More on this storyline

Bobby Manning: Marcus Smart is back for #Celtics #bulls tonight. He said at shootaround he’s dealing with a bad bone bruise in his ankle that doesn’t require surgery, but could bother him all season. He would’ve played the last two games if it was the postseason. -via Twitter @RealBobManning / November 21, 2022
