Celtics ace Smart hits out at 'dirty' Smith

The NBA should have suspended Smith one game for his dirty play. "You can't allow that to keep happening". This is not the first time JR's done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us. Today was a tremendous effort on one of the biggest stages we've all played on.

"I mean, we just play hard", Celtics forward Al Horford said.

So for some stupid reason Cavaliers guard J.R Smith chose to recklessly push Horford from behind while he was in the air trying to receive a lead pass from Smart towards the basket.

Smith said there was no malicious intent on the play. "He's in the air". He can't control how his body goes. And you go and take two hands to the back; that's a dirty shot. He looked quite miffed as the officials watched replays before ultimately determining that Smith would be assessed a Flagrant 1.

He finished the opening quarter 8 of 13 from the field and 4 of 7 from the 3-point line.

EPA Head Scott Pruitt Defends Himself During a Senate Budget Hearing
Former Comcast lobbyist Richard Smotkin helped arrange a controversial trip to Morocco last December and Matthew C. Udall is citing an email written by EPA's security chief saying Pruitt " encourages the use" of emergency lights.

"They're helpless", Smith said of players driving to the rim.

"I don't think tougher", Smith said afterward, showing better defensive instincts than during the game. "I'm not a Chatty Patty, so you're going to have to ask him that". What they needed was a few stops to give themselves a chance at a comeback. Thompson got Cleveland's first basket of the night and helped to limit Horford's effectiveness on the inside early on. By doing so, it would have nipped this issue in the bud while simultaneously making it clear that protecting players is more important than protecting a team's ability to compete. "And if you're not ready, then you can't play".

But on some occasions, this can go too far and there was a clear case of this in game two of the Eastern Conference Finals on Tuesday night.

Now the Cavs have to bring the fight to Game 3 at home on Saturday. "Like we said before, if it's 50/50 balls, he's going to get it". "We've got to come out swinging". "They made shots, we missed shots at the end of the day".
