Brad Stevens: Al Horford Is Our Rock

Celtics coach Brad Stevens

Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith heard it all from the Boston Celtics' home crowd in Game 2, and Al Horford's sister, Anna, is sharing the same fire as the fans on social media. It was a risky play and Marcus Smart went over in anger to Smith as he defended his teammate who was put at risk.

Smith pushed an airborne Horford in the lane and drew a flagrant.

Smith's push was delivered in frustration as the Cavaliers watched a 55-48 halftime advantage disappear, with the incident coming as the Celtics were holding a 12-point lead at 99-89.

The Celtics set the tenor of the game with a 25-2 run in the first that had Cleveland playing catch up for the remainder of the contest. He can't control where his body goes. Smith wasn't exactly engaged in the second half of this game and is now averaging 2.0 points on 2-of-16 shooting after two games in the series. May. That's a dirty shot.

Tyronn Lue's shortcomings key in Game 1
I think even early on with the shots that we had, we had some wide-open looks that just didn't go. In Game 2, James was all but unstoppable as he replied with a 46-point, 12-rebound performance.

"We're out there to play basketball". It's not the first time J.R. has done some dirty stuff, especially playing against us. We know that. So 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 offense to it". Smith was involved, though he was not alone in those missed assignments."A few miscommunications", coach Tyronn Lue said. "We moved on to the next play, and we just locked in even more after that".

"It was a good call. I blatantly pushed him", Smith said. It wasn't like I was trying to low bridge him or something.

"We just play hard, we go out there and we compete", said Horford.
