Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart has struggled from the field once again this season, shooting just 36.6 percent overall entering play against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Thursday night. Despite hoisting 9.5 shots per game, one easy way to improve that percentage is to just dunk the ball off a rebound.

Believe it or not, Smart has actually improved his shooting percentage this season. Entering the year, he was a 35.8 percent shooter from the floor. He’s slated to hit free agency after this season, but for now, he’s attempting to help lead the Celtics to a championship anyway he can.
