BOSTON (AP) – Celtics guard Marcus Smart says he expects to be back on the floor for the first time in more than a month when Boston opens the second half of its schedule at Brooklyn. Smart says he felt good after practicing with the team and that he has been cleared to return after missing the past 18 games with a torn left calf. Boston has struggled on the defensive end of the floor without him, going 9-9 and allowing opponents to shoot 46.5% and average 112.5 points per game over that stretch.
