Now we know why he always wants to come off the bench, so he can use the excuse that hes the only or best scoring option to chuck shots lol

Kyrie should have gone right back to Tatum there for the corner three. Instead a Smart charge.

In fact, he needs to be benched right now and not sniff another minute until garbage time,

Tired of watching Smart nervously clank another brick off the rim.  His shooting is horrific.  Ready to move him for something else.

nope.

Trust your players. Marcus is playing badly and stupidly, but you believe in him for a reason. He will play in the second half and you will expect him to play better.

It's a double-edged sword.  If he doesn't take open shots, he becomes even more of a liability.

Yes, and the reason is that he's better than Shane Larkin, Abdel Nader, and Jabari Bird. ::)

So the game plan is to deliberately take low-percentage shots? At least take 1 or 2 dribbles inside the arc, or attack the paint a la Horford and see if you can pass it back out or get fouled or something.

I just cannot accept that the best thing for Smart to do in that situation is shoot the ball 25+ feet away from the basket.
