J.R Goes Glass


In the closely fought 89-86 win over Boston on January 24th, it was J.R. Smith's clutch three-pointer that helped secure the victory. In last Tuesday's runaway Orange and Blue 100-85 victory at the TD Garden, he dropped 32 points.

Thanks to great team offense, with six players hitting double figures, Smith did not have to shoulder so much of the offensive burden this time. So, as if to prove what an excellent all-around player he has become, Smith added a team-high 12 rebounds to go with his 15 points, in another 6th Man of Year-worthy performance.
