Marcus Smart: "I'm a real physical player"

Saturday at Desert Pines High School just a few miles from Las Vegas Boulevard, the college coaches on hand outnumbered fans and Marcus Smart – ranked No. 24 in MaxPreps.com's Class of 2012 Top 100 – was playing like a trophy was on the line, taking charges, blocking shots, keying the full-court press and bleeding all over the floor after busting open his lip. "I take a beating a lot," Smart said. "Today was one of those days. I took more beatings than I expected to take, but that's definitely part of my game. I'm a real physical player." (Max Preps)
