Bruce Arthur: Celtics’ gains adds to Raptors’ pains

  Bruce Arthur: Celtics’ gains adds to Raptors’ pains It seems strange to say, but one round after being eliminated from the playoffs, the Toronto Raptors are losing the Eastern Conference final. Sure, on the scoreboard it says the Boston Celtics lead the Cleveland Cavaliers two games to none, and who are we to argue with that? The games are on television and everything.But the subhead is that the Toronto Raptors look ever more like chumps, more like suckers, than they did when they were swept out of the second round as the No. 1 seed. The Celtics are tough, smart, fearless. The Celtics are a gang of handsome teenagers who ride motorcycles in formation and get straight A’s. Boy, they’ve been good.

Marcus Smart plays with the physical edge of a pit bull; his style of play might not always be elegant or smooth, but when the fourth-year guard is on the floor, everyone in the building knows he's going to be fighting tooth and nail to make winning plays.

That includes his Boston Celtics teammate Jaylen Brown.

"He was born with his hands dirty," Brown said after the Celtics' 107-94 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 2 on Tuesday, according to ESPN's Chris Forsberg. "I'm just happy he's on our side. Today was a tremendous effort on one of the biggest stages we've all played on. I commend Smart for coming with that hard hat that he always has."

Brown 's 3-pointer lifts Celtics to 97-94 win over Jazz. Turning to examine his opportunity in transition, he found only Marcus Smart in front of him . By this time, Smart was back on his right hand and calmly leaned his left shoulder in while stripping the ball away.

Smart was one of the Celtics' heroes in the Game 2 victory, finishing plus-13 in 31 minutes with 11 points, nine assists, five rebounds, and four steals - not to mention several eye-popping hustles plays that don't show up in the box score.

"I think he's as tough as they come, right? He's a true competitor," Celtics coach Brad Stevens added. "He matches his intensity with a physical toughness."

Even the face of the Cleveland Cavaliers couldn't help but concede Smart's immense impact.

"I think Marcus always makes plays at the right time," LeBron James appraised, which stands - paradoxically, perhaps - as both Smart's simplest and grandest endorsement to date.
