Marcus Smart gave the Celtics crucial minutes off the bench in a four-game winning streak this past week. Smart finished off the Bulls’ series averaging seven points and five assists per game, including an eight-assist outing in Game 5 on Wednesday night. Although Smart did not score well in the first two games against the Wizards, he did well defensively guarding John Wall and Bradley Beal. Smart finished the week averaging 7.3 points, 4.6 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game.

Unfortunately for Tony Allen, he did not get to play this series because of a calf injury. Allen will spend his summer deciding if he wants to resign or play for somewhere else as he becomes a free agent.
