Cavs Shooting Guard JR Smith Won’t Be Suspended For Game 3 Against Celtics

The NBA will not suspend Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard JR Smith for Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Boston Celtics, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Smith was under scrutiny for his shove of Celtics center Al Horford late in the fourth quarter of Game 2 on Tuesday night. Horford was on his way up to finish a lob for a basket and was pushed from behind by Smith. Smith and Marcus Smart got into a scuffle before being broken up and issued double technical fouls. Smith also was assessed a flagrant-1 foul for his actions.

The sharpshooter has been less than superb in this series against Boston, scoring just four points in the first two contests. All four of those points came in Cleveland’s Game 1 blowout loss.
