    Marcus Smart committed an important turnover vs the Grizzlies as the Celtics needed a miraculous back door cut from him and lob to Daniel Theis after Memphis missed three looks to force overtime. Once there, Smart shot 0-of-3 jacking three jumpers between the beginning and end of the period. Ja Morant beat him and Robert Williams back door, and Boston gave up a historic 80 points in the paint.
