It certainly hasn’t been easy for the C’s this season after failing to live up to the very high expectations set out for them before the season started. But now after winning four of their last five, Smart said the tough start was something the team needed to go through.
“It’s funny because if you don’t humble yourself, the world has a way of humbling you for you,” Smart said via Boston.com’s Calli Remillard. “For us to go through what we’ve been going through, it was something that we needed. It brought us back to reality.”
