J.R. Smith is a crucial part of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and he’s upped his game to the tune of a 4-year, $57 million contract from Cleveland in 2016. But that doesn’t mean he’s not still an endless source of basketball comedy.
During the game on Tuesday night between the Cavaliers and the Milwaukee Bucks, Smith was waiting for a play to start when he noticed his old friend Jason Terry standing near him.
On the bench.
In a Bucks uniform.
This is what happened next:
Yes, Smith allowed a layup against an opponent because he was busy dapping Jason Terry. That is one of the best sentences a sportswriter can write, really, and this video is one of the best things I’ve ever seen.
Long Live J.R. Smith.
Against the Pacers last night, James Ennis missed all three of his 3-point attempts… that counted. And he makes this one after fouling out?
Mike Conley more than picked up the slack to lead the Grizzlies to victory.
The Pelicans are effectively out of the playoff race, but Dante Cunningham and Anthony Davis are still competing — even if it looks a little silly.
That tone and a big game from DeMarcus Cousins (29 points, 16 rebounds, six assists) led to a 121-118 win over the Mavericks.
Goran Dragic is very good at alley-oops.
With a “shot” like that falling, the Heat trounced the Knicks, 105-88.
Since trading for him, the Hawks have gotten Tim Hardaway Jr. to buy in defensively.
After this help defense on 76ers center Richaun Holmes cost him dearly, I wouldn’t blame Hardaway if he gave up on the endeavor entirely.
