Two thorns, one rose: Marcus Smart

On nearly every team, there is at least one player that fans have a tumultuous love-hate relationship with. For the 2017-18 Boston Celtics, that is Marcus Smart. Boston’s sixth man is an important part of the offense and integral on the defensive end, but he often makes plays that leave you scratching your head.

Watch R.J. Hunter nail this half-court buzzer-beater

R.J. Hunter might be the best shooter in his draft class. The 22-year-old has a smooth stroke and such a quick release. Defending him on the perimeter is almost impossible. Bad news for everyone except the Boston Celtics: Hunter's range has apparently stretched out to half court. The best part about this shot is Hunter's reaction after it goes in. He's not surprised in the slightest...

COJ: It's RJ Hunter Time

Editor's Note: It was very hard to not name this article 'Stop! Hunter Time'There's this weird thing about injuries when your team is a little younger. Provided they're not serious, sometimes you kind of enjoy it. It opens up the unknown. A new opportunity for a new player, and a chance to see how that player responds in new situations.

Recap: R(ebound) J(umper) Hunter shows up, does work.

The Celtics made it back to .500 with a convincing 99-83 win in Milwaukee against a Bucks team that is long on length and short on depth. After spotting the Bucks the first 8 points and forcing Brad to call a “You guys do realize that this is an actual game, not a scrimmage?” timeout like he did on Friday against the Wizards, the Celtics outscored the Bucks by 8 the rest of the quarter...
