Marcus Smart opened up about the effort of the Boston Celtics to shut down Miami Heat star Goran Dragic.

Dragic combined for 54 points in Games 1 and 2, but scored only 11 in Game 3 (2/10 from the field, 1/5 from beyond the arc).

“He’s a great player. He understands angles. You can’t let him be comfortable. In Games 1 and 2, he was very comfortable. We tried to make him uncomfortable right from the start in Game 3,” Smart told reporters, via Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports.

Miami leads the series 2-1. Game 4 is on Wednesday.
