Advice: The scoring outburst comes out of nowhere with Smart scoring between four and six points in his previous four games. He's almost certainly going to stick in the starting lineup and this strong line may have been aided by Jaylen Brown (illness) being out today, so there's no reason to add Smart based off this game and his winning plays.

Advice: He stayed in the first unit despite Jaylen Brown making a return to the lineup and it led to an easy 128-100 win. Smart is a great fit next to Kyrie Irving because Smart can just focus on defense while not taking many contested shots -- he was 0-of-5 from deep today, of course. As has been the case for his whole career, Smart has more value in reality than fantasy unless your league counts #WinningPlays.
