Seconds after the final buzzer, you'd have to think that Brad Stevens was reminded of a quote he gave before the game to Sean Grande; "Its important that (Marcus Smart) knows what he did impacted our team."
It's almost like Stevens knew how'd this game would play out, because he ended up being exactly right. Smart's momentary lapse in judgement in San Antonio led to a home loss at the absolute worst possible time against a very beatable Detroit Pistons team. The hope is that the Oklahoma State product was forced into learning his lesson as he watched Detroit's their starting back court combined for 44 total points- 17 more than they average together this season - from home.
It'll be interesting to see how the rookie responds tonight against the Nets. To quote Evan Turner after last nights overtime loss, 'He owes us one.'
