Marcus Smart had to leave tonight's game on a stretcher with an apparent left ankle injury early in the 4th quarter.

Smart landed on an opponents foot and seemingly injured his ankle pretty badly. He appeared to be in a lot of pain.

The Garden crowd chanted his name as he was taken off the court. He offered the crowd a thumbs up as he left.
