Video: Celtics’ Marcus Smart, Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo tumble to the floor during a rebounding battle
Giannis Antetokounmpo is listed as 6’11” while Marcus Smart is a whole eight inches shorter. However, that doesn’t mean that the Boston Celtics guard cannot battle the Milwaukee Bucks superstar for the rebound.
The Celtics won over the Milwaukee Bucks in what was a statement game from a team that was initially thought out of the Eastern Conference race. Smart was one of the team’s key contributors as he managed to keep Giannis from getting the board late in the game.

It was an impressive display of competitive fervor from the long-time Celtic. He finished with 19 points, four rebounds, six assists, and a steal. The fact that he managed to snag four rebounds against one of the tallest teams in the NBA is nothing short of impressive.
Smart revealed that he’s been working hard on building the team’s chemistry. His work has seemingly paid off as they dispatched one of their biggest rivals in the East. C’s fans can hope that this hot start will last the entire season.
