Marcus Smart is practicing trick shots - and it may make sense
Marcus spends a lot of time on the floor, so practicing this shot makes sense.— Tom Lane (@CelticsSentinel) August 20, 2019
Hey, taking a shot from distance while lying on the floor? Why not? He does spend so much time on the floor, he may as well practice taking a shot from the prone position if the shot clock is running down.
It would be a long shot, but we may just see Marcus pull this one off at least once this season.— Tom Lane (@CelticsSentinel) August 20, 2019
Between his legs while facing away from the basket? I can't think of a situation where he might employ this shot, but he is one guy that can find a way.
Great to Marcus out there on the hardwood again— Tom Lane (@CelticsSentinel) August 20, 2019
Smart seems over the calf issue, and he is back on the floor. I worry somewhat about Team USA's exhibition game versus Australia two days from now. Two of the Aussie players, ex-Celtic Aron Baynes and Matthew Dellavedova, can be tough defenders. Here's hoping Marcus remains healthy.
