Marcus Smart and J.R. Smith got into a scuffle in Game 2 of their Eastern Conference Finals duel. After the commotion, the Boston Celtics’ home crowd let the Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard know how they feel about him.

Below is a clip of the Boston crowd getting at Smith:

As observed, Smith couldn’t do anything much but let out a grin. Smart, meanwhile, cast out a death stare. Smart and Smith’s scuffle came after Smith pushed Al Horford as the center was up to catch an alley-oop.

Smith got a flagrant foul for his antics. Smart let him knew that he wasn’t cool with the dirty play. Below is Smith’s hard foul on Horford:

The Cavaliers were down big at that point. Yet the Celtics, as proven by Smart’s actions, did not lower their level of intensity. The Cavaliers were just desperate to get any form of a stop on the defensive end.

The Cavaliers ultimately lost Game 2, 107-94. They are down 2-0 and are heading back to Cleveland for Games 2 and 3. The chances look slim for the wine and gold.

LeBron James seems to be the only one in the team who is playing his heart out. Maybe the Cleveland crowd will give the team the boost they need. They need to win their games at home to stay alive and preserve their title hopes.
