Marcus Smart didn't exactly put up Stephen Curry-esque numbers Saturday night.

But the Boston Celtics guard still shot with the confidence of one the NBA's most accurate snipers.

Case in point: In the fourth quarter of Boston's rout of the New York Knicks, Smart had to race to beat the shot clock by chucking up a desperation 3-pointer.

It was a pretty low-percentage shot, but Smart already started jogging down the court while the ball was in the air -- and buried the shot.

That's the second time this fall that Smart has pulled a "Curry" by not even looking to see if his shot went in.

It's also a pretty bold move for a guy who went 3-for-9 from the floor Saturday night and 3-for-8 from 3-point range.

 

Smart's uber-confidence clearly worked on that shot, though, so maybe he should do this more often.
