National Basketball Association won't discipline JR Smith for 'hard foul' on Al Horford

National Basketball Association won't discipline JR Smith for 'hard foul' on Al Horford

"They're gooning the game up and we've got to do the same thing". "I think I'll be fine".

In 131 playoff minutes (almost THREE FULL games), the Cavs have been outscored by 20.6 points per 100 possessions when Clarkson and Hood have played together.

Best player on the court wins. What was lacking was any sort of support from those surrounding James.

For Cleveland, it was a demoralising scoreline, after what was another astonishing moment in year 15 of James' career.

Cleveland's perimeter shooting is mediocre: while they are making 10.2 three pointers a night, they're shooting just 33.6 percent from beyond the arc.

After the game, Smart told reporters that dirty plays like this are nothing new for Smith. "The thing is, when Irving got hurt, I just thought, like, no chance". "He's in the air". With scores tied at 74 with just under four minutes remaining in the quarter, you felt the remaining time left could make or break the contest. "If you don't play no defense, especially in the conference finals, you're not going to win a ball game". He also hit three of his eight threes en route to 23 points. He should not have been on the floor at all, not when the Cavs needed scoring.

"We've got to be tougher", Lue said. "He's made big shots for us". Of course LeBron is going to put up those numbers and what not, but if we don't get stops on the defensive end, they're going to make open 3s and they're going to have rhythm and their guys are going to feel good.

Smith acknowledged the silliness of his foul on Horford.

"It was a good call", Smith said.

Stephen King found himself in hot water for a tweet many felt was insensitive about first lady Melania Trump's recent surgery. The objective of an embolization is to cut off the blood supply to a lesion to cause it to shrink and ultimately die off.

"It wasn't like I was trying to low-bridge him or something to make sure he didn't get it".

And they certainly need more from Smith, whose frustration surfaced at the worst possible time when his hard foul on Horford riled up the Celtics and their rowdy crowd.

"It's one of those deals where when you give a player confidence - and I give a lot of that credit to Brad Stevens - and that player has potential, that can grow into something special".

Cleveland didn't find any more discipline down the stretch. James recorded a 42-point triple double and Boston still triumphed by double digits. There were six turnovers in the fourth quarter.

The Celtics have exposed Cleveland.

Despite the late collapse, James insisted the Cavs did not lost their composure. While neither of these players is known for their offense, they have both established themselves as smart and versatile defenders in the National Basketball Association. "I think that's easy to say".

The Cleveland Cavaliers trail the Boston Celtics 2-0 in the Eastern Conference finals, but Cowherd explained Wednesday how losing to the C's actually could help James' legacy in the long run. In the first quarter, it did not matter how uncomfortable James was.

James overcame all that.

"I don't know where it came from but that sucker is tough", said Ted Williams, whose sister was the principal of Edward S. Marcus High in Flower Mound, when Smart was in school.
