JR Smith embraces the NSFW chant from Celtics crowd

JR Smith embraces the NSFW chant from Celtics crowd”

The Cavaliers guard delivered a dirty and risky two-hand shove to the back of Al Horford as the Celtics forward went up for an alley-oop attempt late in the fourth quarter.

The gritty Celtics fought back against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 2 on Tuesday night to earn a 107-94 win, taking a 2-0 lead in the series.

"I just looked at it, Al is a defenseless person", Smart said.

Celtics fans let Smith know what they thought of the foul during the stoppage in play. Both players were assessed technical fouls, and Smart was dragged away to his bench, still turning and yelling at Smith, who looked relatively impassive. The flagrant also killed the small amount of momentum the Cavs were trying to muster while down just eight in the fourth quarter, allowing the Celtics to easily finish off the Cavs.

"That's not the first time J.R. has done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us".

"It was a good call".

"We just play hard, we go out there and we compete", said Horford. "I blatantly pushed him".

Smart will continue with his uncanny ability Saturday when the C's travel to Cleveland for Game 3. They can chant and scream all they want, it actually makes me feel better about myself.

Then again, it might be fair to wonder why Smith was still on the floor at that point in the game to shove Horford, given his zero points and tough night defending Brown.

Smith was great last series against the Toronto Raptors, making 10 of 13 3s and averaging 12.5 points per game.

Smart's impact in Game 2 didn't only get noticed by Stevens, but by Cavs forward LeBron James as well, saying he makes plays at the right time. "We talked about it before the game".
