Marcus Smart calls out JR Smith for 'dirty' play

Marcus Smart calls out JR Smith for 'dirty' play

Marcus Smart diving all over tarnation.

As Al Horford was attempting to field an alley-oop pass from Smart, Smith delivered a forceful two-handed push from behind. A minor skirmish broke out and Smith was assessed a Flagrant 1, which probably should have been a Flagrant 2 and an ejection. Horford made both free throws and scored two more points on the ensuing Celtics possession, completing the four-point swing to put the C's up 12.

"That's a dirty shot", Smart said of Smith's play after the game. The Celtics just looked like they were playing harder in the fourth quarter, while the Cavs looked lethargic and frustrated. He can't control how his body goes. That's a dirty shot. "You can't just allow that to keep happening".

We here at The Loop/Golf Digest love J.R. Smith.

"It's like a bully. You keep letting a bully keep picking on you, he's going to keep picking on you until you finally stand up, and that's what I tried to do". "One of my guys was down and I took offence to it". The player he often guarded, Jaylen Brown, led the Celtics with 23 points.There were myriad miscommunications on defense that led to wide-open Boston 3s.

But as we reported previously, the drug maker continued making payments - in $100,000 monthly installments - to avoid angering Trump.

Smith said there was no malicious intent on the play. The question is whether he realizes how dumb and risky it was.

Smith acknowledged the flagrant call was correct and denied any malice in his actions. "I blatantly pushed [Horford]". "It wasn't like I was trying to low bridge him or something, just trying to make sure he didn't get it in". Hard fouls. Everything you could ever want in playoff basketball! "I understand why they gave me a flag there".

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

After the game, Smart was asked why he took such significant exception.

The Game 2 loss means the Cavaliers will head back to Cleveland trailing 2-0 in the series. And one costly foul.
