JR Smith Shoves Al Horford Mid-Air, Marcus Smarts Retaliates

JR Smith Shoves Al Horford Mid-Air, Marcus Smarts Retaliates

Lue's decision not to play guard Jordan Clarkson for a single minute in Game 2 was curious, mostly because Clarkson is quick enough to handle Rozier and he scored 10 points in Game 1. You call it what you want to call it.

Rather than stooping down to Smith's level and making dirty plays, he chose to go the other way and get dirty on the score sheet, with six straight points after the foul. He's known for it, especially playing against us. "We go out there, we compete. We are really glad he's on our team". Smart, who later described Smith's actions against Horford as "dirty", reacted impulsively, shoving Smith, who shoved back.

Smart aired his frustrations with Smith post-game and accused him of playing a "dirty" style of basketball. "I blatantly pushed him. Some nights not knowing [what] we were going to do and I just promised my mom, I'm going to make it for us". "I understand why they gave me a flag there".

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart had his fingerprints all over a Game 2 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, once again successfully defending home court and putting their Eastern Conference rivals in a tough situation as the series progresses.

This caused Marcus Smart to react and come to the defense of his teammate which started a bit of a scuffle. "You know, and I just looked at it: Al is a defenseless person".

Tuesday marked the beginning of Ramadan, the Muslim observance that spans the length of approximately one month. A new month in the Islamic lunar calendar begins with a sighting of the moon on 29th of the prevailing month.

"You just can't allow that to keep happening", he said.

When the referees went to the monitor to review the play, the Celtics fans serenaded Smith with an NSFW chant. In the 2015 playoffs, Smith tried to get away with a punch to the face of Celtics forward Jae Crowder. Still, the fact Smith didn't even receive a fine is a bit surprising. "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".

Boston led 84-77 after three quarters and took command late in the fourth with the Cavs getting little offense other than from James.

Horford said that, if anything, Smith's infraction only sharpened the Celtics' focus. Many years ago inside a Flower Mound, Tex. high school gymnasium, they watched the kid collect floor burns like loose change and play an unselfish brand that converted a football-crazed community into Smart disciples.

While the referees were consulting the replay monitor, the TD Garden crowd broke out into a loud chant of, "F-- you, JR!"
