The Celtics lost their Summer League opener last night to the Utah Jazz, 100-82. But Monday's night game gave us a first look at this year's draft picks, and another glance at second-year guard/forward James Young, who hopes to make an impact for the Celtics next season.
Celtics second-year guard Marcus Smart led the way for Boston by doing a little bit of everything against the Utah Jazz last night. Smart scored 26 points, had 8 assists and 3 rebounds. His tenacious defense led to 2 steals, and Marcus was playing with the same intensity we saw back in April against Cleveland in the first round of the playoffs. Diving for loose balls, hustling up the floor, and taking the ball to the hoop, Smart hasn't lost a step and will be using Summer League play as a chance to improve his game.
