JR Smith Shoves Al Horford in Celtics-Cavaliers Game 2

Lebron Shows Off Incredible Memory of Terrible Start

Lebron Shows Off Incredible Memory of Terrible Start

Smart was a team-best plus-21 overall in plus/minus.

"[Smart] was born with his hands dirty". "And I just looked at it, Al is in a defenseless position".

"We're out there to play basketball".

After the game, Smart was asked why he took such significant exception. He was cleared to return for Game 5 of Boston's series against the Bucks, and his efforts that night might have prolonged Boston's season.


Ortiz wasn't the only Boston athlete in attendance on Tuesday. Marcus Morris countered with a 3-point play that instigated the Celts definitive surge. As it bounced in front of the Cavaliers' bench, Green just watched while Smart lunged to tap the ball out to teammate Jayson Tatum before sailing into the feet of the Cavaliers coaching staff and the fans seated courtside.

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. Horford was 4-of-4 in the frame with 11 points and performed with assurance while guarding and being guarded by Cavs center Kevin Love.

After the game Smart pointed the finger at Smith. In the wake of the push, Smith was almost attacked by the Celtics' Marcus Smart, leading to technical fouls being assessed to both players. "I blatantly pushed him. We were knocking them down". "He's a true competitor", Stevens said. "We have to be tougher, mentally and physically".

"People talk about him all the time". "He's the guy we really, really lean on". He made a number of game-changing plays. "We're coming to get you".
