People seem to forget the losing streak we had when Smart was as healthy as you can get. Nope, we're losing all because Smart is the greatest of all time.   ::)

Nice tri, Triboy. However, what made you think that this thread would turn out any differently that the one you had a couple of weeks ago, which was also critical of Horford?

Didnt you said the same thing when it was suggested Rondo and his lazy ways/defense was killing the team (prior to being traded) and when suggested it would be a mistake to draft Fultz?  🤔

I wasn't even on the forum when Rondo played for us, I was just an observer.

And yeah, I got Fultz wrong - as did literally hundreds of pro scouts

Glad Smart is back. Team defense looked much better

Horford with another vanilla game.

Just going to keep kicking this dog until it's dead, aren't you?

Horford's defense was exceptional tonight. He shut down Blake.

Yup, and he provided help defense on Drummond.

Indeed. And it is in fact possible that both players were big contributors. But "either/or"-ism is the Triboy way.

Horford:

4th in the league in 3PT% (1st among PF/C)
27th in assists (3rd among PF/C)
27th in rebounds (7th among PF)
Offensive/Defensive Ratings: 116/102
BPM: 4.8

But no, he's not flashy enough and he only scored 3 points in a solid win.

I actually like Smart, but good luck putting together a list like the one above. Worse defensive rating, worse plus/minus, complete opposite shooting, fewer assists (as a point guard), more turnovers, mediocre rebounding. Off the bench.

Thats nice but
Without Smart this team would not be +30 rating

With Smart playing, the team doesnt give up 120-130 pts

Team needs to extend Smart after this season. Heart of the team

Both are important to the team and the team wouldn't function without either of them. Celtics haven't missed the post season since Smart was drafted. Same with Horford back when he's with the Hawks.
