Ish Smith may stand a diminutive six feet tall, but that didn't prevent him from getting up and making a tremendous defensive play on Friday night. 

During the second quarter of the Phoenix Suns' contest with the Boston Celtics, Smith bolted over to the weak side and provided some tremendous help defense, denying the 6'9" Jared Sullinger at the rim with an emphatic rejection. 

Suns guards seem to have an affinity for rejecting imposing big men this season.
