Marcus Smart expects to return to Celtics after skin heals on lacerated right hand

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart said he lacerated his right hand after punching a glass picture frame out of frustration over his play, and despite trade whispers surrounding his name, he said he expects to be back on the court with Boston after the All-Star break. Speaking to reporters for the first time since injuring the hand last month in Los Angeles, Smart said it was anger over missing a last-second shot against the Lakers during Boston's season-worst four-game losing streak that led him to punch the picture frame at the team's Beverly Hills hotel. Smart is hoping to return to action later this month after the skin heals on the back of his right hand.

If you listen to Brad Stevens and his players, there's little said inside the locker room at halftime. As we've seen this season, how Boston plays in the third quarter is a major indicator of the game's outcome. Boston has a winning record when trailing after the first quarter (12-7) and second quarter (13-10) of games this season, but they're just 7-10 when trailing after three quarters of play.

The Denver Nuggets became just the second team to beat the Golden State Warriors twice this season, using a late 3-pointer by Nikola Jokic to cap a fourth-quarter rally that produced a 115-108 victory in Denver. The win allowed the Nuggets to earn a 2-2 season-series split with the Warriors, with each team winning once on the other's home court. The victory also capped a 2-2 split for the Nuggets over a rugged six-day stretch in which they played the Boston Celtics, the San Antonio Spurs, the Oklahoma City Thunder and Golden State.

You won't find anyone connected with the Celtics that likes the idea of not having Kyrie Irving around. The play of Terry Rozier has stood out, obviously. "I just think when you're young and you get the opportunity to play, it's great experience when you have the responsibility of the game on your shoulders instead of just, you know, when you increase your minutes played," said Celtics coach Brad Stevens.
