Mr. Winning Plays.

With the game on the line, Marcus Smart made literally a winning play:

Starting halfway through the fourth quarter, Smart was responsible for:

  • rides Lowry in transition, takes charge from Powell
  • throws perfect lob to Tatum mismatched with VanVleet in post, leading to free throws
  • strips Siakam in transition (leads to Kemba and-1)
  • grifts a strip foul on Lowry
  • blocks Powell’s game-tying layup

Unbelievable. I love him and trust him.
