We know he can make shots, but just communication defensive-wise."Smith explained: "We were slow on our coverages".

Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart has accused Cleveland Cavaliers rival J.R. Smith of being a "dirty" player after the two nearly came to blows in game two of the Eastern Conference Finals. More importantly, he was involved in a controversial play late. "He's not even looking and you go and take two hands to the back?"

"That's me. That's how I was raised", Smart said.

Thankfully, the Celtics center wasn't hurt badly on the play and was able to quickly get back up but that didn't stop his teammate Marcus Smart coming to his defence as he took exception to the foul.

"That's not the first time J.R. has done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us", said Smart, who called Smith's push on Horford "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. I don't think I realized how bad a coach Lue is. We know that. It's like a bully. Keep letting the bully keep picking on you, and he's going to keep picking on you.

"One of my guys was down, and I took offence to it", added Smart, who produced a superb defensive display to help contain LeBron James and the Cavaliers on Tuesday. And Smith, a veteran of three straight runs to the NBA Finals with the Cavaliers, embraced the moment as the majority of the 18,624 fans in attendance passionately expressed their displeasure. Smith was involved, though he was not alone in those missed assignments."A few miscommunications", coach Tyronn Lue said.
