Marcus Smart turned his bitter end to Game 5 into fuel to win Game 6 vs. the Milwaukee Bucks on the road
There is no better salve for the sting of a loss than the rush of a hard-fought win in the NBA playoffs. After a pair of steals and a Jrue Holiday block of what might have been a game-winning shot sent Boston Celtics veteran point guard Marcus Smart to a bit of a dark place after the Celtics’ Game 5 loss to Holiday’s Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday, that became quite evident to the Flower Mound native on Friday.
“I’ll just say that tonight will be the first night after that, since that game, that I got some sleep,” shared Smart after Boston’s big Game 6 win at Fiserv Forum against the Bucks.
“I haven’t been asleep yet,” he related.
