Marcus Smart Is Fed Up With JR Smith's 'Dirty' Style of Play

Smart pressured J.R. Smith into a wild miss, had to be separated from the Cavs guard down the other end after Smith shoved Horford in the back.

For starters, Smith didn't score a single point in the Cavs' loss to the Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals, missing all seven of his shots.

This isn't Smith's first time for off-ball antics during the playoffs in Boston. "I blatantly pushed him", he said. "They're aggressive, and we've got to match that". We see that. They're being physical. "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".

Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue accused Boston of "gooning it up", and the Celtics were OK with that assessment.

Korver added 11 points off the bench for Cleveland. The Cavs may have the best player in the National Basketball Association, but the Celtics are just dominating the Cavs so far.

It's near impossible to find a flawless historical comparison to Smart in Celtics history. Sit him and risk never getting him back.

Smart and Celtics took Game 2, but no doubt the league should be looking at Smith's risky actions further in the coming week. Whatever it takes, every player, 1 to 15, whatever it takes, that's what we're doing.

Of course, there's irony in Cleveland having backcourt issues in this series.

He put his fingerprints all over the game with 11 points, five rebounds, nine assists and four steals.

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.

Marcus Smart calls it playing free, and that's how the Celtics emotions erupted last night.

"He just does everything out there on the floor, " Love said. "I don't want the opposing fans to like me".
