Marcus Smart starts in place of Kemba Walker, drops 12/6/5 line

Marcus Smart started at point guard and generated a team-high six assists while contributing 12 points (2-5 FG, 6-6 FT) with five rebounds, three steals, and two three's across 33 minutes in the lop-sided 149-115 win against the Nets on Wednesday night.

Fantasy Impact:

Smart did well starting in place of Kemba Walker (rest) and rebounded nicely from his previous two games, where he scored a combined 10 points across those two contests. Smart is appealing in DFS whenever he's inserted into the starting lineup, putting up 14.4 points, 5.0 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 1.6 steals, and 2.5 three's in 39 starts this season. However, his inconsistency and poor shooting efficiency while coming off the bench are why DFS players tend to fade him in his typical sixth-man role. Next up for Smart is a battle with the Toronto Raptors on Friday.
