Marcus Smart’s 3-point numbers drastically improved during the 2018-19 season, but his shooting clip may have been a sign of things to come.
Smart went 4-of-5 from deep in the first half of the Boston Celtics preseason matchup against the Orlando Magic on Friday night, but one trey stuck out from the rest.
Smart hit his fourth 3-pointer of the half with just over two minutes left in the second quarter, giving Boston a massive 62-27 lead. But Smart knew this one was going in — so much so he didn’t even have to watch it once it left his hands.

The Celtics really would benefit from Smart having another solid year from beyond the arc, but we’re sure Brad Stevens would prefer the point guard to watch the majority of his shots go through the hoop.
