Tristan Thompson had nothing but good words to say about his teammate in the Boston Celtics, Marcus Smart.

Thompson praised Smart for his performance on both ends of the floor and noted he wants to play at the same high standards as the versatile guard.

“You see it with Marcus Smart from Day 1. He’s a dog. He brings it at the guard position. That’s what I do at the big position. I’m going to bring it every day.

As Big Perk (Kendrick Perkins) would say ‘Bring that wood!’ That’s what I do,” Thompson said, via Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports.

Thompson, who spent nine years with the Cleveland Cavaliers (2011-2020), recently agreed to a two-year, $19M deal with the Celtics.
