National Basketball Association won't discipline JR Smith Game 2 flagrant foul in ECF

J.R. Smith’s ‘dirty’ antics makes him perfect Cavaliers’ scapegoat

Smith pushed an airborne Horford in the lane and drew a flagrant.

It was the only time Smith was on target. Marcus Morris got in Smith's face after Smith pushed Horford in the back to prevent a layup.

JR Smith has never been a fan favorite in Boston. "They're aggressive, and we've got to match that". We had some good looks, they didn't fall. Sometimes they focus on things that don't matter, and the other times they focus on that he impacts winning. He can't control how his body goes.

Now the Cavs have to bring the fight to Game 3 at home on Saturday. After a 25-point lambasting in the opener, Lue altered his frontcourt by putting Tristan Thompson with the first five and bringing Kyle Korver off the bench. 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.

Now, Lue has to ponder another shake-up. LeBron James going off for 40-plus and a triple-double.

Smith had an absolutely brutal game - zero points on 0-for-7 shooting in 27 minutes in what ended up being a loss to knock the Cavs down 0-2 in the series.

This can lead to the breakdown of the thermal balance of the system and the complete destruction of the batteries and the auto . National Transportation Safety Board Keith Holloway said the agency is not yet investigating the matter.

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.

Then to top of Horford's personal 8-0 run, he knocked down a smooth 21-footer to increase the C's lead to 103-89, with less than three minutes to play.

Veteran Jose Calderon appears to be out of consideration despite his steadiness and experience.

He did manage four points in Game 1.

They are finding life in the playoffs is more hard without Irving, who at times carried Cleveland's offense, giving James a break and Lue a dependable second scoring option. I'm thinking about going outside, playing video games, playing with my friends.
