Tempers flare between Celtics-Cavaliers after dirty JR Smith foul

Share

Smith pushed Smart away, starting a brief shoving match before teammates and personnel intervened. He can't control how his body goes, and he's not even looking, and you go and take two hands to the back.

The Game 2 loss means the Cavaliers will head back to Cleveland trailing 2-0 in the series.

Late in the fourth quarter, J.R. Smith committed a flagrant one foul on Horford as he pushed the latter while in mid-air. We know he can make shots, but just communication defensive-wise."Smith explained: "We were slow on our coverages".

And if Madrid come calling for Hazard, they would represent a tempting proposition for the 27-year-old. It's more important for me as I've never won this one [the FA Cup].

Marcus Smart was not happy about the move from Smith and came over to confront him. Instead, Smith prevented the jam from happening by shoving Horford into the crowd, which led to Smart coming over and trying to start things with Cleveland's veteran guard. This isn't the first time J.R. has done some dirty stuff, especially against us. "You let a bully keep picking on you, he's going to keep picking on you until you finally stand up". We also fully expect the National Basketball Association to look into this prior to Game 3.

"He's our rock", Brad Stevens said. "We were knocking them down". Shocking since he had a front-row seat for his Smith's, shall we say, "goonish" antics.

Horford extended his streak of games with double-digit scoring to 13 playoff games, and increased his postseason scoring average this season to 17.2.

"We just play hard, we go out there and we compete", said Horford.

"He's our rock. He's the guy we really lean on". But the Celtics have to feel pretty good about having Smart on their side in this fight - and any fight for that matter.
