JR Smith has been very upset about his most recent benching. There are reports that he benched because he yelled at Head Coach Mike Woodson. From the New York Daily News:

J.R. Smith’s benching in Charlotte Tuesday night may have been a direct result of Smith sitting most of the overtime in Monday’s win over Phoenix.

According to a source, Smith was vocal with coach Mike Woodson about not starting the extra session against Phoenix after missing what would have been a game-winning shot at the end of regulation.

Here is the problem for JR: when you are playing well the team might overlook you yelling at the coach and untying shoes. However, when you are shooting 35% from the field, you don’t get the benefit of the doubt.

It looks like JR had some other issues as well.
