BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Celtics will host the Pacers tonight at 7 p.m., and keep an eye on the basketball whizzing all over the court.

Surging C's have won three in a row and six of eight, and their ball movement's set an example for the rest of the NBA.

Boston's produced at least 30 assists in four straight games, including a season-high 37 on 47 baskets in Monday's beating of Brooklyn.

Marcus Smart's led the team in helpers a couple times during the run, and he's been impressed.

"We're back to what Brad used to call point-fire basketball," Smart said. "We're just shooting it, driving it, or passing it, and that's what we've got to continue to do. It just brings the energy on both ends."

Tonight marks the first meeting with the Pacers since a one-point Celts loss in Indiana in November.

Victor Oladipo drilled the winning 3 in the closing seconds that night, and Smart knows the All-Star will be tough to stop. Hear more from him below.
