JR Smith: 'I Don't Want the Opposing Fans to Like Me'

The Boston Celtics turned on the jets down the stretch in Game 2 against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Thankfully, the Celtics center wasn't hurt badly on the play and was able to quickly get back up but that didn't stop his teammate Marcus Smart coming to his defence as he took exception to the foul.

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

We here at The Loop/Golf Digest love J.R. Smith. "He's not even looking, and you go and take two hands to the back, that's a dirty shot".

JR was ultimately assessed a flagrant foul 1 following a review by the officials, and received a pleasant "Fuck You JR" chant from the TD Garden crowd.

Smith was given a flagrant foul one and he and Smart were both issued technicals. The Cavs' veteran pushed Horford in the back mid-air, leaving him vulnerable to a serious injury as Horford hit the hardwood.

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. "You can't allow that to keep happening". When it was all over the Celtics were calling him "dirty". "You keep letting a bully keep picking on you, he's going to pick on you until you finally stand up, and that's what I tried to do". Smith was involved, though he was not alone in those missed assignments."A few miscommunications", coach Tyronn Lue said. I just wanted to make sure he didn't get it. "I understand why they gave me a flag there". "One of my guys was down and I took offence to it".

"We were awful defensively", said Thompson, who was moved into the starting lineup as coach Tyronn Lue's most obvious game-to-game adjustment but contributed only two rebounds and four points after halftime.
