JR Smith: 'I Don't Want the Opposing Fans to Like Me'

Fantasy Basketball Breaking News Video: JR Smith Shoves Al Horford Mid-Air, Marcus Smarts Retaliates

Marcus Smart called out JR Smith for his "dirty" play against Al Horford on Tuesday night.

The Boston Celtics turned on the jets down the stretch in Game 2 against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Legislature interviews Underwood, others as potential successor to attorney general
The remaining six attorney general candidates, including Humbach, Diederich and Zapesochny, will interview Wednesday. He told lawmakers it "would not be a bad decision" if they were to keep Underwood in the interim role.

Horford was grateful for Smart's support, adding: "I felt like it was uncalled for, that type of play". When it was all over the Celtics were calling him "dirty."It was Smith's biggest TD Garden meltdown since Game 4 of the Cavs' 2015 sweep, when Smith took a swing at Jae Crowder and cracked him in the jaw, earning a suspension.Let's start with the basketball. He's not even looking, and you go and take two hands to the back, that's a dirty shot". A minor skirmish broke out and Smith was assessed a Flagrant 1, which probably should have been a Flagrant 2 and an ejection. After the All-Star center was sent careening to the floor, Smart quickly got in the face of Smith in defense of his teammate. We all know in this room, we've all been professionals for a long time, we're not going to make every [shot]. The flagrant also killed the small amount of momentum the Cavs were trying to muster while down just eight in the fourth quarter, allowing the Celtics to easily finish off the Cavs. "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". In fairness to Smart, the replay showed he had every right to be upset. "One of my guys was down, and I took offense to it". "But that's the thing about the group of our guys". 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.

What Smith did certainly was not just a "good, hard foul".
