Smith escapes punishment for Game 2 shove

How much will Le Bron James future decision be impacted by the result of Eastern Conference finals

He almost overcame the rest of his teammates shooting 5-for-20 from the 3-point line. Baynes once again came off the bench for Boston, as Brad Stevens opted to again charge Marcus Morris with the task of slowing Cleveland's number 23 down.

The Celtics punched the Cavaliers first and never looked back in rolling to a Game 1 rout.

The Boston Celtics can all but put this series to bed with a road victory here and taking a 3-0 lead.

Perhaps going back to Cleveland in their home arena will help the supporting cast of the Cavaliers. I'm thinking about going outside, playing video games, playing with my friends. James still managed to do nearly everything in this game, but it is too hard for one individual to completely break this defense. There wasn't much lacking from James on Tuesday. James can (and will) get his, but the Celtics are more than happy to pick on his lackluster supporting cast with their never-ending stream of switchable two-way wings.

Smart called Smith a "dirty" player, citing Smith's 2015 suspension for punching Jae Crowder in Game 4 of the Cavs' first-round sweep.

Tensions boiled over when Smith shoved Boston forward Al Horford on a drive to the basket. The Boston Celtics are shooting 35.8 percent from beyond the arc and 77.1 percent from the free throw line. "He's in the air". He can't control how his body goes, and he's not even looking. "You just can't allow that to keep happening".

Oddly enough, it's Cleveland guard JR Smith who drew criticism for borderline dirty play. He's known for it, especially playing against us. Only three Cleveland players had double-figure point totals; Tristan Thompson had eight.

Another possibility is to drop Smith, who is 2 of 16 from the field and missed all seven 3-pointers, from the starting lineup, but that would be risky because of his mercurial nature.

Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said they need to be more physical and referred to the Boston players as goons. "We're just trying to get the win".

Tesla said it was "deeply saddened" by the accident and was working with local authorities to establish the cause. Tesla faces a slew of other issues, from increased skepticism over its finances to safety probes by regulators.

Smith acknowledged the silliness of his foul on Horford. "It was a good, hard foul", Smith said.

"I mean, they [Cavaliers] were our rivals", he said. There were six turnovers in the fourth quarter. So that leaves five extremely strong prospects that could fall to Cleveland.

Despite the late collapse, James insisted the Cavs did not lost their composure. "I've always been traveling", Smart said. "I think that's easy to say".

"I don't know where it came from but that sucker is tough", said Ted Williams, whose sister was the principal of Edward S. Marcus High in Flower Mound, when Smart was in school. I felt like we played great defense, but the foul was called on Al Horford.

"We have the opportunity to go back home and take home court", he said.

It got back to 10 points, though, because of poor decisions made by the Cavs in Game 2.

But things unraveled as the game wore on.

Bayless failed to note that after James briefly left the game after being struck in the jaw by the shoulder of the Celtics' Jayson Tatum in the second quarter, the Cavaliers were outscored 71-47 for the rest of the game. We all expected he would.
