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

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

However, Smart stated following Game 2 that he was feeling a bit more soreness than what he has typically dealt with his surgically-repaired right thumb, according to Chris Mannix of Yahoo Sports. "We know that. It's like a bully; you keep letting a bully pick on you, he's going to keep picking on you until you stand up".

So following the play where Horford was shoved from beyond by Smith, Smart came running up to defend his fellow Celtic.

With the Cavaliers hanging in down eight points with four minutes left, Smith shoved a defenseless Al Horford in the back as the Celtics big tried completing an alley-oop.

Smart didn't shoot well - he was 3 of 9, and the crowd slightly groaned when he teed up a 3-pointer upon checking into the game during a Celtics run in the third quarter. Marcus Smart diving all over tarnation. "You can't allow that to keep happening". That's not the first time J.R. has done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us.

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

It seems that Tyronn Lue continues to get in his own way.

J.R. was whistled for a flagrant foul.

"I think I'll be fine". Brad Stevens is coaching circles around this guy. Not only is he arguably the world's most avid celebrity golfer, he might love the game we love more than anyone on this planet.

The Cavs had the locomotive called LeBron, a couple of teammates who could stay on track with him, and a half the roster playing like a caboose.

Then here's when things get dicey and Horford begins to show why he's one of the best in the business at taking care of business.

Wow, it's nearly like Lebron could have tried to block the dunk.

Smart said Smith's history with the team was part of the reason he confronted him.
