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

The Celtics just looked like they were playing harder in the fourth quarter, while the Cavs looked lethargic and frustrated.

J.R. Smith committed a blatantly dirty foul late in the Celtics' Game 2 win over the Cavaliers.

"We're out there to play basketball", Smart said.

Officials called a flagrant-1 on Smith, and Smart got in his face.

[Marcus] Smart, who was also assessed a technical for mixing it up with Smith following the Horford shove, said it was a dirty play. Predictably, Smart was celebrated by the Celtics crowd while Smith was met with some colorful language by Boston supporters. Smith wasn't exactly engaged in the second half of this game and is now averaging 2.0 points on 2-of-16 shooting after two games in the series. May. Or, you could say, he was up there in the pecking order of the culpable. It's really unsafe, and fortunately, Horford didn't get hurt as he hit the deck. "That's not why I'm here", Smith said, per ESPN's Dave McMenamin. We know he can make shots, but just communication defensive-wise."Smith explained: "We were slow on our coverages". Smith was involved, though he was not alone in those missed assignments."A few miscommunications", coach Tyronn Lue said. "You can't just allow that to keep happening".

"That's not the first time JR has done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us", Smart added.

"So you know, it's like a bully, 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. One of my guys was down and I took offence to it". 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.
