National Basketball Association drops the ball by not suspending JR Smith

Smith's shoddy performance in Game 2 - he missed all seven shots and committed a flagrant foul in 27 forgettable minutes - underscored a startling disparity between Cleveland's and Boston's starting backcourts that allowed the fearless Celtics to withstand a brilliant, 42-point effort by LeBron James and take a 2-0 series lead.

"That's a dirty shot", Smart said of the foul.

Just in case you lost track, Horford went off for eight straight points in the matter of 91 seconds. We'll have to wait and see if the National Basketball Association allows Smith to play - or if he'll have a little more free time to tee it up this weekend. He's known for it, especially playing against us. "We moved on to the next play way and we locked in after that".

Smith got a flagrant one.

"I felt like it was uncalled for that type of play there", Horford said. "He's in the air. He's not even looking and you go and take two hands to the back?" "You've got to stand up and that's what I tried to do". "I blatantly pushed him.I understand why they gave me a flag there".

Many devices were malfunctioned and the plane was jolting strongly. "The aircraft was shaking so hard I couldn't read the gauges". Captain Liu Chuanjian found himself in a turbulent struggle to maintain control of a plane full of 119 passengers.


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. Horford shook it off and made both his free throws, as well as the Celtics' next two baskets to pad their lead. In the 10 games that Smart has played in the playoffs, the Celtics hold an 8-2 record that speaks to a bit of the stability that he brings off the bench.

It looks like Smart really wanted to snuff him right in the grill, but Cleveland's Tristian Thompson was there to pull Smart back during the scrum of extra-curricular activities.

Now the Cavs have to bring the fight to Game 3 at home on Saturday.

"We've got to be tougher. They're aggressive, and we've got to match that".
