On Tuesday night, Cleveland Cavaliers guard JR Smith was given a Flagrant 1 for pushing Boston Celtics big man Al Horford during an alley-oop attempt. Both players were assessed technical fouls, and Smart was dragged away to his bench, still turning and yelling at Smith, who looked relatively impassive. Smith's foul was a textbook example of a Flagrant 2, and the double-tech after was a bit of an insult.
Smith's push was delivered in frustration as the Cavaliers watched a 55-48 halftime advantage disappear, with the incident coming as the Celtics were holding a 12-point lead at 99-89. That's a dirty shot. The flagrant also killed the small amount of momentum the Cavs were trying to muster while down just eight in the fourth quarter, allowing the Celtics to easily finish off the Cavs.
