In addition to matching a season-high with 11 assists in Monday's 117-103 win over the Milwaukee Bucks, Marcus Smart came out of the game with an addition to his wardrobe.
Though there's no relation between Marcus Smart and Bucks backup guard Javonte Smart, they couldn't ignore the fact that they share a surname and decided to swap jerseys following the game.
Javonte Smart, an undrafted rookie out of LSU appearing in just his sixth game for Milwaukee, does have some NBA lineage in him. His cousin, Keith Smart, played two games for the San Antonio Spurs following a national championship at Indiana in the 1980s and went on to coach in the league for 20 years, including stints as head coach for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings.
While it was a great night for Marcus Smart passing the ball, Javonte Smart outscored him in 18 fewer minutes on the court. Marcus Smart had 2 points on 1 for 6 shooting -- 0 for 3 from 3-point range -- for the Celtics while Javonte Smart had 3 points on 1 for 4 shooting in 12 minutes off the bench.
