"Smith said there was no malicious intent on the play.

''I blatantly pushed him. It wasn't like I was trying to low bridge him or something. Just make sure he didn't get it,'' Smith said. ''It was a good, hard foul.'' "

oh please, a shove in the back when a guy is midair is not a 'good hard foul'
f u JR.
Has he read the rulebook? Like, the flagrant foul part?

Have the officials? Like, even the introduction thereof, because I have my doubts, to put it mildly, lol.

Formally, he should get punished by the NBA. On the other hand, his play is really hurting the Cavs - and his bad attitude as well - so I'm definitely not going to lose sleep if the NBA decides not to punish him by giving him a suspension.

"It was a good call," Smith said. "I blatantly pushed him. It wasn't like I was trying to low-bridge him or something to make sure he didn't get it. It was a good, hard foul. I can understand why they gave me a flagrant."

Based on the play he should have been ejected.

Based on his answers to questions about it he should be suspended. If he isn't I'll be shocked if he doesn't attempt a similar "good hard foul" before this series is over.

Let's hope they suspend him at the start of next year because he's too valuable for the celtics right now.

I think without the League doing more some player, some day, is going to give it back to Smith and hard.  It is negligent for the League to fail to address J.R. Smith's dangerous play both because (1) it IS dangerous and (2) a player or players may take it upon themselves to deal with Smith themselves in the absence of the League teaching Smith a lesson.

Why did Smart get a tech on this play? Smart was just talking and JR starts pushing him. The double tech is the worse call in basketball. Well, maybe not the worse but it's a weak call. JR should've already been tossed by the time the double tech takes place.

Walked up and confronting an opposing player verbally in an aggressive manner usually warrants a tech, especially when it results in shoves and a scrum.

Fortunately the Cavs separated Marcus and JR lol.

But JR Smith actually pushed Smart and he gets the same tech as Smart talking? Smart needs to get his monies worth next time.

Per Woj, he won't be suspended by the NBA:

Wait until you see the physicality of game 3 in Cleveland.

JR Thug with the home court on his side, in what could be the last games they see LeBron at home in Cleveland. I hope the refs show some balls...but somehow I doubt it.

This game is going 6 or 7 games if it kills every player on the Boston Celtics. I just hope nobody gets injured.

Didn't Yabu used to be a boxer maybe he should have a word with JR. Where's Dave Cowens when you need him?
