BY THE NUMBERS

STARTING TO GET SMART

Marcus Smart has been a double shot of espresso for a Celtics team that stumbled groggily through the first 20 games of the season. Boston is 7-0 since Smart and Marcus Morris were elevated to starting roles last month, and Smart’s impact isn’t lost on Kyrie Irving.
