The Celtics just ran the clock down intentionally, then had Smart go at him.

Smart scored easily (the Celtics have a 14-point advantage), and Curry doubled over, wincing.

He shoots 1-for-4 from the field, grabbing four rebounds and dishing out three assists.

Fascinating move by Ime Udoka going back to his double-big lineup with Williams playing so well.

Williams swatted away a Curry floater at the absolute peak of its trajectory.

Curry missed a 3-pointer, and Marcus Smart banked one in, so the third quarter is officially done.
