Quantcast

Marcus Smart, in his NBA debut, looked very good in the offensive half court making some very nice penetrate and kick passes and committing just one turnover.

Defensively he was as advertised finishing the game with five steals as the Celtics defeated the Miami Heat 85-77 today in Orlando.

However, other than a nice high pick and roll jump shot off a screen from Kelly Olynyk and a key jumper late in the game as the shot clock winded down, Smart struggled shooting the ball finishing with 10 points on 2-8 from the floor (0-5 from 3).

In fact, understandably considering it's their first game in actual NBA colors, both teams highly touted drafted point guards struggled offensively.

LeBron's favorite collegiate point guard Shabazz Napier had 12 points on 3-15 shooting for the Heat.

Napier did get it going late though as he started 0-6 from deep and hit two of his final three from distance.

Olynyk picked up where he left off from last seasons's summer league with 20 points, eight boards and four steals; which somewhat offset his six turnovers.
