Celtics Fans Showered J.R. Smith With ‘F*ck You’ Chants After Cheap Shot on Al Horford (VIDEO)
Tuesday night in Boston was supposed to be a redemption-type night for the Cleveland Cavaliers, and even though LeBron James came out guns blazing with 21 points in the 1st quarter, it wasn’t enough as the Celtics mounted a furious comeback to take a 2-0 lead in the ECF.
The game didn’t go off without controversy.
In the 2nd half, Al Horford went up to catch an alley-oop when J.R. Smith inexplicably pushed him mid-flight, causing him to tumble to the ground. Teammate Marcus Smart quickly rushed in to yell at Smith about his actions.

While refs separated the teams, the Boston crowd showered Smith with an unpleasant chant:
