Marcus Smart calls out JR Smith for 'dirty' play

Share

The Cleveland Cavaliers started to lose control at the end of their Game 2 loss to the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference finals. It was a frustrating second half for the Cavaliers, so of course J.R. Smith did something dirty and stupid. Marcus Morris got in Smith's face after Smith pushed Horford in the back to prevent a layup. Smith pushed Smart away, starting a brief shoving match before teammates and personnel intervened. It was a very risky play, and Smith was hit with a Flagrant 1 foul. "I just looked at it, Al is a defenseless person".

After the game, Smart said Smith's play was a "dirty shot" and added that it wasn't the first time Smith has done something like that. "It's like a bully, you keep letting a bully keep picking on you, he's going to pick on you until you finally stand up". That's not the first time JR has done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us.

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

The crowd erupted with NSFW jeers directed at Smith, who can only smile while being rained on with profanities from fans. He could very well have been ejected from the game. "I just wanted to make sure he didn't get it".

It's possible Smith could face further discipline from the National Basketball Association for his cheap play, but no reports have surfaced as of this writing.

Smith had a terrible game, recording zero points while going 0-for-7. But the Celtics have to feel pretty good about having Smart on their side in this fight - and any fight for that matter.
