Video Shows JR Smith's Dirty Foul On Al Horford

Marcus Smart hustles his way into the Cleveland Cavaliers bench during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals

Those frustrations boiled over during one sequence that saw J.R. Smith shove Al Horford, much to the chagrin of Marcus Smart.

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. Smart came over to get in Smith's face after the play, leading both to get technical fouls. A minor skirmish broke out and Smith was assessed a Flagrant 1, which probably should have been a Flagrant 2 and an ejection. 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. "You can't allow that to keep happening".

"That's not the first time JR has done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us", he said. "He's known for it, especially playing against us", Smart said, per the Boston Globe. Keep letting the bully keep picking on you, and he's going to keep picking on you. "One of my guys was down and I took offence to it". He's not even looking, and you go and take two hands to his back.

OPEC, for its part, estimated that the excess oil inventories in the OECD had shrunk to just 9 million barrels. On the New York Mercantile Exchange, West Texas Intermediate futures were trading up 0.5% at $71.33 a barrel.

The Garden crowd naturally responded with a profane chant directed at Smith, but the Cavs guard said he didn't mind the jeers; in fact, he apparently enjoyed them.

"I felt like it was uncalled for, that type of play there", Horford said. "I blatantly pushed [Horford]". It wasn't like I was trying to low-bridge him or something to make sure he didn't get it. "I understand why they gave me a flag there". "But that's one thing about the group of our guys, we have each other's backs, and it is what it is".

That means we can expect to see more chippiness between opposing players as they look to gain a psychological and physical advantage.
