Marcus Smart calls out JR Smith for 'dirty' play

Nearly immediately, Celtics guard Marcus Smart came to Horford's defense.

Well, JR Smith had himself quite a night.The Cavaliers' 107-94 loss to the Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals wasn't kind to Smith.

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. Smith pushed Smart away, starting a brief shoving match before teammates and personnel intervened. 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". Smith got a flagrant foul, and Smith and Smart were assessed double technicals for their flare-up. Celtics fans, meanwhile, made a decision to hit Smith with a rather NSFW chant. It's not the first time J.R. has done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us. "You just can't allow that to keep happening".

Smith, who missed all seven of his shots and finished with as many points as the fans in the stands on Tuesday, certainly has a history against the Celtics. "One of my guys went down and I took offense to it".

Eliminated by the Cavaliers in three of the last four postseasons, the Celtics needed a statement win in the opener and Horford's steady influence helped make that possible from the onset. He could very well have been ejected from the game.

Smith said there was no malicious intent on the play. This isn't the first time Smith got himself caught in the middle of the Boston's crowd's anger.
