Marcus Smart’s offensive improvement is good for everyone:

Celtics Blog wrote a piece looking at how a change in former Cowboy Marcus Smart has lead to good things for the Boston Celtics.

Marcus Smart has never been known as a scorer. Instead, his reputation is built upon hustle plays and intense defense. Evolution is natural in NBA players. Improvements are made during the summer where insurmountable hours are spent in the lab.

Smart’s evolution is clear to the naked eye. Over the last two years, his shooting has been on an upwards trajectory. His shooting form and motion look smoother which in turn breathes confidence into his play.

This growth as a three point shooter was evident last season, posting his highest three point percentage of his career at 36.4 percent. He did this on 4.3 attempts per game which is roughly his career average for three-point attempts. {Celtics Blog}
