During the Cavaliers and Celtics preseason game a scuffle between the two teams broke out. J.R. Smith was in the middle of things for the Cavs.
During the scuffle, Smith took a cheap shot from behind by Celtics Marcus Smart. The move earned Smart an ejection.

The cheap shot on Smith was completely uncalled for. Smart must just want a piece of J.R. and took the opportunity to get a shot at him.
The fact that it’s only the preseason and this kind of stuff is already going down should make for an entertaining season in the Eastern Conference.
