Celtics’ Marcus Smart Says Team Needs Short Memory for Turnaround

Published

The Boston Celtics have been a bit disheveled this season and there seems to be some discord within the organization, centered on superstar guard Kyrie Irving who appears headed for free agency this summer.

During their recent struggles, the Celtics continue to show consistency, and show that they can make a legit run at the NBA title this season, despite a strong showing in 2017-2018 season.

Celtics guard Marcus Smart believes that in order to see a turnaround the team must adopt short term memory.

“Right now, it doesn’t surprise me because that’s just how things are going for us,” Smart said, according to ESPN’s Kevin Arnovitz.

“It surprises me in the fact that that’s not who we are, but at this moment, it doesn’t. We’ve just gotta fix it. Like I said, it’s going to be fixed. It can and will be fixed. It’s just not going at the pace we expected it to.”

Following a recent blowout loss to the Toronto Raptors, Smart was vocal about his views.

“That’s the thing about this game,” Smart said. “You’ve got to have a short memory. This game’s over with, and we’ve gotta focus on tomorrow and get ready to come out and play.”

“Because everybody here’s professional,” Smart continued. “Everybody here plays basketball, and everybody is really talented on this team. And I know the potential that we all have. So, it’s just a matter of time.”
