Tempers flare between Celtics-Cavaliers after dirty JR Smith foul

Tempers flare between Celtics-Cavaliers after dirty JR Smith foul

"[Horford's] a defenseless person, he's in the air", Smart said.

In the 2nd half, Al Horford went up to catch an alley-oop when J.R. Smith inexplicably pushed him mid-flight, causing him to tumble to the ground. Both players were assessed technical fouls, and Smart was dragged away to his bench, still turning and yelling at Smith, who looked relatively impassive.

Even though Boston has taken a 2-0 series lead against the Cavs it doesn't mean there isn't plenty of drama left in this series. When it was all over the Celtics were calling him "dirty".

It seemed like Smith was heading for a flagrant two for a risky act that could have injured Horford, but instead, all he got was a flagrant one.

Clay Travis thinks that this move by JR Smith was a cheap shot and has no place in the game.

And said in jest, didn't lure him whether Henry Cavill , a colleague in the new " Mission " in the DC universe. From this point onward, things start getting out of hand for Ethan Hunt and his band of merry overachievers.

"You just can't allow that to keep happening", he said. That's not the first time JR has done some dirty stuff, 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.

Smith said there was no malicious intent on the play. "It wasn't like I was trying to low bridge him or something, just trying to make sure he didn't get it in".

Smith finished with zero points on 0-for-7 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers fell into a 2-0 hole in the Eastern Conference Finals. Hard fouls. Everything you could ever want in playoff basketball! "I can understand why they gave me a flagrant". Smart had one of his best games as a Celtic in the process.

The Garden crowd naturally responded with a profane chant directed at Smith, but the Cavs guard said he didn't mind the jeers; in fact, he apparently enjoyed them.
