J.R. Smith scored nine points on 3-of-9 shooting with three rebounds, three assists and three triples in Monday's win over the Celtics.
Smith stayed true to form and drilled some heavily contested triples, scoring all of his points from beyond the arc. The Celtics started to attack Smith on defense and he wasn't able to put up much of a fight against Jaylen Brown, but with Jayson Tatum playing a bit passive the Celtics couldn't take full advantage of the mismatch. If Smith can't hit his triples than he becomes unplayable as his defense can't be relied on. Lucky for the Cavs he had it going tonight.
