J.R. Smith missed all seven of his shots and didn't score a point in 27 minutes of Tuesday's Game 2 loss to the Celtics.
That's why when the crowd inside TD Garden was expressing their disdain for Smith in Game 2 against the Boston Celtics, the mercurial shooting guard can only smile. Al was defenseless in the air. He's known for it, especially playing against us.
Cavaliers coach Ty Lue was asked about Smart's impact and noted: "Same impact he always has: just winning basketball". Ultimately, both Smart and Smith were given technicals with the latter also assessed a Flagrant 1 foul. "If you let a bully keep picking on you, he's going to keep picking on you until you finally stand up". That's not the first time JR has done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us. "Everybody had the right intentions, just communicating that a couple seconds late put us in tough positions and they capitalized on it". Shocking since he had a front-row seat for his Smith's, shall we say, "goonish" antics. "I blatantly pushed him".
The series now shifts to Cleveland for Game 3 on Saturday night, and the four days between games likely won't do much to squash the beef between Smart and Smith. "I just wanted to make sure he didn't get it".
Then again, it might be fair to wonder why Smith was still on the floor at that point in the game to shove Horford, given his zero points and tough night defending Brown. After breaking out in the series sweep of the Toronto Raptors, Smith has seemingly returned to the shell where camped out in the first round against the Indiana Pacers.
Smart talked about the play after the game, calling Smith a bully and a dirty player who had to be dealt with.
