Marcus Smart calls JR Smith a 'bully' after questionable play

"And I just looked at it, Al is in a defenseless position".

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

During the fourth quarter of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Boston Celtics and Cleveland Cavaliers, Smith pushed Horford from behind to prevent an easy basket.

The NBA prides itself on making sure players aren't making risky plays toward each other, especially in the playoffs. Both players were assessed technical fouls, and Smart was dragged away to his bench, still turning and yelling at Smith, who looked relatively impassive.

"It's like a bully", Smart continued. "And that's what I tried to do".

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.

The Celtics and Cavaliers face off again in Game 3 on Saturday.

We'll see if he receives any time off for his latest hijinks. "We see that. They're being physical, they're gooning the game up, and we have to do the same thing", said Lue.

He's right about everything except for the gooning it up.

It came in the key with Smith going up against Celtics big man Al Horford.

Smith had a awful game, recording zero points while going 0-for-7. "We moved on to the next play, and we just locked in even more after that".

Smith got a flagrant one. But the Celtics have to feel pretty good about having Smart on their side in this fight - and any fight for that matter.
