JR Smith drew a flagrant foul in Game 2 Tuesday night after shoving Al Horford, angering the Boston Celtics, their family members and fans. Smart came over to get in Smith's face after the play, leading both to get technical fouls.
It seemed like Smith was heading for a flagrant two for a risky act that could have injured Horford, but instead, all he got was a flagrant one.
Needless to say, it was an extremely ill-advised decision by Smith, not to mention a risky play and a selfish play at that. 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. "That's not the first time J.R. has done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us. We moved on to the next play and we locked in after that". Keep letting the bully keep picking on you, and he's going to keep picking on you.
Speaking about the incident after the game, the Boston point guard explained how the Cavs man had previous for this type of play against the Celtics and likened him to a bully. He can't control how his body goes, and he's not even looking, and you go and take two hands to the back. "One of my guys was down and I took offence to it".

"We have each other's backs".
That means we can expect to see more chippiness between opposing players as they look to gain a psychological and physical advantage.
"It was a good call", Smith said after the game, in which he finished with zero points on 0-for-7 shooting.
