JR wasn’t making much sense post game, but this was the weirdest comment of all. I could see if he hit a 3 or something after the chant, but he was terrible throughout the game.
“It was a good call,” Smith said. “I blatantly pushed him. It wasn’t like I was trying to low-bridge him or something to make sure he didn’t get it. It was a good, hard foul. I can understand why they gave me a flagrant.”
While the referees were consulting the replay monitor, the TD Garden crowd broke out into a loud chant of, “F— you, JR!”
“I love it,” Smith, who shot 0-for-7, said of the jeers. “I don’t want the opposing fans to like me. That’s not why I’m here. They can chant and scream all they want; it actually makes me feel better about myself. They know me.”
