JR Smith Shoves Al Horford in Celtics-Cavaliers Game 2

J.R. Smith and Marcus Smart

As the 4th quarter was winding down and the Celtics were winning comfortably, JR Smith shoved Al Horford in the back as he left his feet on a drive to the basket.

Smith had a miserable night in the 107-94 loss to the Celtics, failing to provide the secondary scoring the Cavaliers needed beyond LeBron James and Kevin Love, missing all seven shots with zero points as the Cavaliers' drop 2-0 in the Eastern Conference finals.

"I just looked at it, Al is a defenseless person", Smart said. When it was all over the Celtics were calling him "dirty."It was Smith's biggest TD Garden meltdown since Game 4 of the Cavs' 2015 sweep, when Smith took a swing at Jae Crowder and cracked him in the jaw, earning a suspension.Let's start with the basketball". "That's not the first time J.R. has done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us". 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 chorus of "[Bleep] you J.R." rained down on him after the Cleveland guard's flagrant 1 foul and could be heard through the TV broadcast. Both Smith and Smart were also issued technical fouls for their ensuing scuffle.

Smith had a terrible game, recording zero points while going 0-for-7. "I blatantly pushed him". "He's known for it, especially playing against us".

"It was a good, hard foul - I can understand why it was given".

"You just can't allow that to keep happening", he said. Keep letting the bully keep picking on you, and he's going to keep picking on you. More importantly, he was involved in a controversial play late. "One of my guys was down, and I took offense to it".

Said Thompson: "If we don't get stops on the defensive end, they're going to make open threes".
