With just under four minutes to play in the fourth quarter of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals, the Boston Celtics held an eight-point lead on the Cleveland Cavaliers. Things were looking good for the Celtics, but the Cavaliers certainly weren’t out of the game, especially with LeBron James on their side. What they needed was a few stops to give themselves a chance at a comeback. Instead, they unraveled.
The most notable moment came when J.R. Smith decided to shove Al Horford in the back while the Celtics big man was in mid-air going up for an alley-oop. Thankfully Horford was uninjured, but nevertheless Smith’s play led to a small fracas, as Marcus Smart got in Smith’s face to stick up for his teammate. After a review, Smith was given a flagrant one foul, and double technicals were assessed to Smart and Smith.- Advertisement -
Now, the league has decided that there will be no further punishment for Smith. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported as much on Wednesday afternoon.
