JR Smith Has Career Night In Game 1 Of Eastern Conference Finals [Video]


JR Smith was on fire Wednesday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Cleveland Cavs and the Atlanta Hawks.

JR set a Cavs playoff record landing eight-three pointers, ending the night with a career-playoff-high of 28 points.


LeBron said in an interview with Rachel Nichols that he approached dealing with the younger Cavs players with patience. Similar to the way he deals with his children.

“Get him here and I’ll take care of it. I got him.”
