Marcus Smart finished Thursday's big win over Miami with 23 points on 7-of-12 shooting, adding three rebounds, two assists, five steals and four triples. Analysis: Smart came through with a big offensive output, as he was one of four Celtics starters with at least 21 points. Boston's starting point guard turned in his fifth 20-point game of the postseason after failing to score 20 for the final five months of the regular season. In addition to the scoring, the 2022 DPOY racked up five steals to round out a solid performance. He averaged just 9.8 points and 1.5 triples across the first four games of this series, so Thursday was a welcomed bounce-back effort. He'll look to keep it going Saturday in Game 6 when Boston tries to force a winner-take-all Game 7 with a third straight win.
