J.R. Smith one flagrant foul from suspension

J.R. Smith got suspended for his first flagrant foul of the playoffs, a flagrant-2 against the Celtics for taking a shot to Jae Crowder’s head.

Smith picked up a second flagrant foul in Game 5 of the NBA Finals for trying to run through Draymond Green. This time it was just a flagrant-1, but that still gives him four flagrant points (at least unless the league rescinds last night’s).

Another flagrant-1 would trigger a one-game suspension. A flagrant-2 would trigger a two-game suspension.

Smith would serve it in his next healthy game, whether that’s Game 7 or the start of next season.
