Horford went crashing to the floor, and Celtics guard Marcus Smart was among those who took issue with the play.
According to ESPN.com's Dave McMenamin, Smart said after the game, "That's not the first time JR has done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us. He's known for it, especially playing against us. We know that. So, you know, it's like a bully: You keep letting a bully keep picking on you, he's going to pick on you until you finally stand up, and that's what I tried to do. One of my guys was down, and I took offense to it."
Officials reviewed the play and gave Smith a flagrant 1 foul, which meant he was not ejected from the game.
Basketball Hall of Famer and TNT NBA analyst Reggie Miller felt the referees made a mistake by not tossing Smith:

Now hold up!!!! DeMar DeRozan got TOSSED and a Flagrant 2 vs Cleveland in Semifinal's, how is JR Smith still in this game?? BE CONSISTENT!!!
Smith struggled mightily in Game 2, as he missed all seven of his attempts from the field and finished the contest without a point.
Even so, Smith is a key player for the Cavs due to his usual ability to knock down open threes created by LeBron James breaking down the defense.
That didn't come to fruition in Game 2, but Cleveland is at its best when the likes of Smith, Kevin Love and Kyle Korver are making their shots from long range.
Because of that, the Cavs and Smith are fortunate that he was able to avoid a suspension.
If Smith can get back on track in Game 3 and lend a helping hand to LeBron, then it will go a long way toward helping Cleveland come back from the 2-0 series deficit it currently faces.
