J.R. Smith’s ‘dirty’ antics makes him perfect Cavaliers’ scapegoat

Late in the fourth quarter of the Celtics' 107-94 victory over the Cavs last night, JR Smith took a cheap shot at Al Horford while he was in the air looking to throw down a lob from Marcus Smart.

Celtics guard Marcus Smart came to his teammate's defense, exchanging words and shoves with Smith after the play.

Stop me if you've heard this one before: National Basketball Association officials made a questionable call regarding a player ejection in a meaningful playoff game.

"That's not the first time JR has done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us". "He's known for it, especially playing against us. You've got to stand up and that's what I tried to do". "You know, I just looked at it, Al is a defenceless person".

While Smith didn't use any verbiage like "gooning" to describe the Celtics, he said he expected the conference finals to be hard-fought. "I blatantly pushed him.I understand why they gave me a flag there".

Lightning strike back, beat Capitals in Washington
Those last-second power play goals, including a buzzer-beater, aren't exactly routine, especially in back-to-back games. ET, NBCSN). "They came in here, they're desperate and they played that way", said Capitals coach Barry Trotz.

But Smart said a message needed to be sent to Smith, who received a flagrant foul to punctuate his flagrantly foul performance (no points in 27 minutes).

Smith has been flat out very bad on the defensive end in this series, with the Cavs sporting a 117 defensive rating with him on the floor. Though, thankfully Tristan Thompson restrained him and appeared to save Smart from actually taking a swing at Smith, which would have nearly certainly resulted in a suspension for the Celtics guard.

He made another basket, on top of drawing the and-one, as he put the Celtics up 101-89 with 3:37 to play. He went 0 for 7 from the field and failed to make a 3-pointer for the second consecutive game. Cleveland had 15 turnovers leading to 13 Boston points. He was a ghost against the Pacers in the opening round, shooting 31 percent from the three-point line while averaging 8.6 points across seven games. "They got to. That gets them going, and they've got players that are gritty players that play hard".

"We've got to be tougher, mentally and physically", Lue said.
