J.R. Smith went off on the Pacers on Friday night with 23 points including seven 3-pointers to go with four steals in the Cavs’ 115-108 win.
Smith’s 23 were a season-high and he was feeling it from downtown to help Cleveland to just their second win in eight tries. Most notably though was the fact that Smith played 37 minutes. He hadn’t played 35 or more since the end of November. For Smith owners, who more than likely own him in deep leagues, that’s a nice sign that these Cavs’ lineup changes could result in Smith getting more time and more shots up. Of course, Dwyane Wade (personal) didn’t play tonight so who knows how things will look for J.R. Swish when Wade returns.
