Marcus Smart calls out JR Smith after Game 2

Video: JR Smith Shoves Al Horford Mid-Air, Marcus Smarts Retaliates

Those frustrations boiled over during one sequence that saw J.R. Smith shove Al Horford, much to the chagrin of Marcus Smart.

Tuesday night in Boston was supposed to be a redemption type night for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and even though LeBron James came out guns blazing with 21 points in the 1st quarter, it wasn't enough as the Celtics mounted a furious comeback to take a 2-0 lead in the ECF.

At the very least, it will be interesting to see if the conflict with Smart can get Smith going.

With the Cavs down eight and less than four minutes remaining, Smith was called for a blatant flagrant foul on the Celtics' Al Horford. It's not the first time J.R.'s done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us. "He's known for it, especially playing against us". You keep letting a bully keep picking on you, he's gonna keep picking on you until you finally stand up. When it was all over the Celtics were calling him "dirty". "One of my guys was down and I took offence to it".

"We're out there to play basketball", he said. Smith was involved, though he was not alone in those missed assignments."A few miscommunications", coach Tyronn Lue said. "I blatantly pushed him". He can't control how his body goes, and he's not even looking, and you go and take two hands to the back.

"It was a good call", Smith said. "It wasn't like I was trying to low bridge him or something, just trying to make sure he didn't get it in". It was a good, hard foul. "I can understand why they gave me a flagrant". "But that's one thing about the group of our guys, we have each other's backs, and it is what it is". Not only is he arguably the world's most avid celebrity golfer, he might love the game we love more than anyone on this planet.
