Smith needed to be at his best to keep the Phoenix at bay, especially as they had Reggie Middleton in fine form, the Cheshire player scoring 39 points in a thrilling game.
Although he may have lost the scoring battle, Smith also pulled down 10 rebounds and dished out six assists in a brilliant individual performance.
In the BBL Trophy, Glasgow Rocks made it safely through to the BBL Trophy quarter-finals after defeating Leeds Carnegie 84-48 in a lop-sided contest.
