Marcus Smart calls out JR Smith for 'dirty' play

LeBron James Lebron Shows Off Incredible Memory of Terrible Start
Sidney Guerrero | 16 May, 2018, 13:01

It was a frustrating second half for the Cavaliers, so of course J.R. Smith did something dirty and stupid.

It was Smart who confronted Cleveland's J.R. Smith for what Smart believed was a risky push of a defenseless Al Horford late in the fourth quarter.

Smith was assessed a flagrant foul and both received technical fouls.

The crowd erupted with NSFW jeers directed at Smith, who can only smile while being rained on with profanities from fans. "I thought we all played well but I thought Al was certainly very good". Al was defenseless in the air. He can't control how his body goes, and he's not even looking, and you go and take two hands to the back.

After the game, Smart spoke with the media and called out Smith for his "dirty" antic. "You just can't allow that to keep happening".

Horford was the best player on the floor in the first quarter, an unbelievable accomplishment considering Cavaliers superstar LeBron James was on the parquet at the same time.

"It's like a bully", Smart continued. "You've got to stand up and that's what I tried to do".

Smith and the Celtics have a checkered history.

The Celtics and Cavaliers face off again in Game 3 on Saturday.

We'll see if he receives any time off for his latest hijinks.

"He's our rock", Brad Stevens said.

"I think he's as tough as they come, right?" "He matches his intensity with a physical toughness".

"I felt like it was uncalled for, that type of play there", Horford said.

Horford had a much better explanation for the hard-nosed play the Celtics displayed over the final 24 minutes of the game, propelling them to their victory.

"You've got to give credit to coach because he ends up making the adjustments and being able to key in on the playoffs, whichever the matchup is", said Horford.

"He's our rock. He's the guy we really lean on". In the end, the Celtics won by 13 - 104-97 - to take a surprising 2-0 series lead.
