BOSTON – The Celtics won, but they suffered a big loss. Rookie phenom Marcus Smart was his usual aggressive self when he drove hard in transition. But an unfortunate landing spot on one of his strides had him roll his ankle as he pushed off to elevate. This caused an excruciatingly painful ankle sprain that initially looked like a break or tear.
