Adrian Wojnarowski reported Wednesday that Cleveland Cavaliers guard JR Smith will not be further disciplined by the NBA after shoving Al Horford in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
The NBA will not discipline Cleveland's JR Smith for the foul on Boston's Al Horford in Game 2 of Eastern Conference Finals, league source tells ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) May 16, 2018
Horford went up for a lob on from Marcus Smart on the play but Smith shoved him in the back while in mid-air. He got up un-injured after the fall as Smart proceeded to get into it with Smith around the foul line.
Both Smart and Smith received technical fouls after the scuffle and Smith also received a flagrant-one foul, resulting in two shots and the ball. Some may have expected Smith to either get a flagrant-two or get suspended for Game 3 and beyond, but the NBA has decided to leave the discipline as is.
The Celtics and Cavs have a long break before Game 3 tips off on Saturday at 8:30 p.m. EST in Cleveland.
