Celtics a Smart choice to close out Bucks

MILWAUKEE -- The Boston Celtics had waited for weeks to get Marcus Smart back on the floor after missing the last six weeks with a thumb injury.

Smart finally returned Tuesday night and it's not a coincidence that the Celtics are now just one victory away from the second round and can lock it up Thursday night when they visit the Milwaukee Bucks in Game 6 of their first-round Eastern Conference playoff series at the Bradley Center

Smart only scored nine points in 25 minutes of work but was a force on the defensive end, helping hold the Bucks to a series-low 36 percent shooting percentage.
