During last night’s game between the Memphis Grizzlies and the New York Knicks, J.R. Smith and Jerryd Bayless received double technicals during the second quarter for an altercation in the middle of the court. Smith elbowed Bayless across the upper chest for no apparent reason, while Bayless retaliated by shoving Smith across the chest with both of his hands.
Smith, however, replayed the whole episode in shock. ‘Other than me trying to get the ball, I don’t know what he (Bayless) could’ve been mad at,’ Smith said. “Some small guards have a little man’s complex. They got to work that out.”
The NBA hasn’t issued any fines against J.R. Smith yet, but don’t be surprised if they watch the replay below and issue their own penalty against him.
