Nearly immediately, Celtics guard Marcus Smart came to Horford's defense.

Late in the fourth quarter, J.R. Smith committed a flagrant one foul on Horford as he pushed the latter while in mid-air. Smith pushed Smart away, starting a brief shoving match before teammates and personnel intervened.

After the game, Smart spoke with the media and called out Smith for his "dirty" antic.

Both players were hit with technical fouls and Smith was given a flagrant 1, though a flagrant 2 and an ejection was more suitable. Celtics fans, meanwhile, chose to hit Smith with a rather NSFW chant. "He's known for it, especially playing against us". He can't control where his body goes.

Horford was the best player on the floor in the first quarter, an awesome accomplishment considering Cavaliers superstar LeBron James was on the parquet at the same time. "You just can't allow that to keep happening". "You let a bully keep picking on you, he's going to keep picking on you until you finally stand up".

Smith and the Celtics have a checkered history. That's what I tried to do. Smith was ejected for the game and hit with a two-game suspension from the National Basketball Association. Smith was involved, though he was not alone in those missed assignments."A few miscommunications", coach Tyronn Lue said.

The Celtics didn't score on the possession, but it exemplified the effort that Boston put in while rallying out of a double-digit first-half hole and keeping the Cavaliers at arm's length in the final frame. In the 2015 playoffs, Smith's back-hand swing concussed Jae Crowder in the fourth game of Cleveland's sweep.
