Despite receiving 31 minutes of playing time on Monday, J.R. Smith‘s only points came on a pair of free throws to go with four rebounds, one assist and two steals in a loss to the Warriors.
Smith missed all five shots from the field. He’s emerged as a valuable piece in Cleveland but still hasn’t shaken his streaky label. His starting backcourt mate, Jose Calderon, was just as invisible with three points and one assist but only picked up 17 minutes. Smith is only worth using when he’s on one of his tears while Calderon isn’t a fantasy option outside of the deepest formats.
