J.R. Smith of the Cavs Gives Up Dunk to Dap Opponent
Tuesday night the Cleveland Cavaliers took on the Milwaukee Buck in Wisconsin for one of their many matchups due to both being in the Central Division. During an inbounds play the Milwaukee Bucks had possession and at that moment is when Matthew Dellavedova launched the ball to Tony Snell for a wide open dunk. What is so wrong about this? Take a look.

J.R. Smith’s man was Tony Snell and he didn’t take part in defense on that play because he went to go up and dap opponent Jason Terry on the sideline. The Cavs would eventually go on to lose the game 118-101 to fall to 13-3 on year while Milwaukee advances too an even 8-8 record. When asked about the play after the game, J.R. Smith decided to have some fun with the media.

Coach Tyronn Lue was asked about the play and he said it was a moment of embarrassment and that he had talked to J.R. about it. Lue also gave the typical “we just have to move on to the next game” statement but said that it wasn’t intentional of Smith. J.R. chimed in and gave the media a different side from his humor and said the he simply wasn’t paying attention and there is no more to it. He just had a blunder.
