All of J.R. Smith‘s 18 points tonight came from deep, as he went 6-of-9 from the beyond the arc with six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 31 minutes on Tuesday in a win over the Thunder.
J.R. Smith and Rodney Hood (24 minutes, 14 points, four steals, two rebounds, two steals) combined for 11 made triples on the night. Both have been posting top-100 value since the massive shakeup to the Cavaliers roster at the trade deadline. Shooting this hot will almost certainly fade for both players making Smith more of a 3-point streamer, and Hood worth holding as a back-end source of scoring and treys with some added upside on the defensive end.
