Marcus Smart Out Two Weeks After Fighting Hotel Decor

Celtics guard Smart hurt taking a swipe

Head coach Brad Stevens said Wednesday that Smart received stitches at a Los Angeles hospital after the incident at the team hotel.

"Disappointed, as you can imagine", Stevens said of Smart's actions. "But, uh, that's probably the right word for it". It is what it is. "It's good to see a guy that may not have the, quote, stats that other people have recognized for all that he brings to the table night in and night out on both ends of the court".

Asked if there were concerns about Smart's temper given past flare-ups, including punching a hole in a wall after being sent to the locker room early during a game in Washington, Stevens said Smart needs to channel his emotions properly. "So he's going to be here for these two games and then he will stay here in Southern California for a week to 10 days with a couple of our staff, and then rejoin us in Boston". Horford, who has had concussions in the past, was held out against the Clippers as a precaution. "He didn't get behind the defense a lot tonight, but I was happy to have him on the floor". Smart is instead back in Boston with hand lacerations, and Boston will need to lean heavily on Rozier and Larkin to get it done against the defending-champion Warriors without him. Smart isn't know for his shooting, and his miss at the buzzer extended Boston's season-long losing streak to four games.

"Very, very grateful", Horford said before tipoff. Whatever the decision was, he made a bad decision. "We expect him to be back".

Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving has had problems with his right knee for almost three years now. They have the right coach to figure it out, and a good leader in Irving to lead the team in the right direction to finish the season strong. "So I'll leave that all to coach".

The Warriors can't afford to let the Celtics sweep the season series, which would give Boston a mental edge if these two teams meet in the NBA Finals. Jordan finished with 15 points and 14 rebounds for his 26th double-double of the season; he had missed the last five games with a sprained left ankle.
