It may only be a preseason game, but we have certainly been offered an entertaining showdown between the Celtics and the Cavs, so we thought we’d break it down for you.
First, Sam Dekker drops Jason Tatum in a “OMG, did that just happen?” moment:

But, Jason Tatum came up with a pretty good explanation for what happened, namely Terry Rozier’s Puma’s were to blame for the whole thing 🙂
As if this wasn’t enough, a fight broke out between J.R. Smith and Marcus Smart, after Smith grappled with Aron Baynes. Check out the moment the fight broke out here:

After the game J.R. Smith went out trolling Marcus Smart saying: “You can’t flop as much as he does and be tough.” Check out everything else he had to say in the clip below:

Marcus Smart was obviously also asked if he had any explanation about the altercation responded “Nope, nope, nope … none of that […] whatever consequences come with it, come with it.” After which he added that while exiting the floor he made a gesture, just not to the crowd as everybody thought, but to J.R. Smith to meet him in the back.
Smart told JR to "meet him in the back” 😳
