Marcus Smart banks in intentional-miss attempt, makes series-clinching steal (video)


With the Celtics up one and 2.4 seconds left in Game 5 last night, Marcus Smart intentionally tried to miss a free throw. He failed, banking the ball in.

But Smart made up for it by covering a lot of ground to steal the 76ers’ long pass and clinch Boston’s 4-1 series victory.

This sequence is such typical Smart. His shot was off target, but he still found a way to help the Celtics win.
