Lenzelle Smith Jr

Michigan State Spartans
Penn State Nittany Lions
Nebraska is just 11-12 and 2-8 in the Big Ten conference this season. Still, if there’s one sentence that I’ve said in about every article since New Year’s, it’s that “winning on the road in the Big Ten isn’t easy”. The Buckeyes nearly fell into that trap with cold shooting and a lazy closeout as the Huskers got as close as five with just under three minutes remaining, but Lenzelle Smith Jr’s surprise 21 points proved to be enough to survive a 39% shooting clip in a 63-56 win in Lincoln.
The biggest knock against Nebraska is that lack of a takeover, star power player that demands the ball and overwhelming defensive attention, and that came in to play late. But, they’re a scrappy bunch, one that has hung with other good Big Ten teams. In a stretch of four straight games, they lost to Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, and Wisconsin by only a combined 40 points. They too held those opponents into the mid-sixties in points (except Wisconsin, who scored just 47, probably by their own doi...

Knicks shooting guard J.R. Smith is somewhat of a mystery man, and Monday night he put on a show for the Madison Square Garden crowd that only he could deliver (well, JaVale McGee probably could too, but that goes without saying). J.R. started with a display of incompetence, airballing a first half free throw, much to the delight of everyone. And, as is the case with most of these...
New York Knicks shooting guard J.R. Smith tried to join a scrimmage involving some young kids during halftime of Monday night's game at Madison Square Garden.
After trying to defend an inbounds pass, Smith headed down the court with the offense and called for the ball, but the kids wouldn't give it to him. NBA broadcaster Mike Breen joked that the kids didn't pass...
The New York Knicks are KILLING the Sacramento Kings, having a nearly 50-point lead on the defunct team including 41-point and 31-point quarters. J.R. Smith is having a terrific game with 25 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 steals, 0 turnovers, and this nifty celebration. H/T The Knicks Wall The post J.R. Smith With An Air Guitar Celebration (GIF) appeared first on The NBA Mistress.
Twenty-five-point games aren’t really anything unusual from JR Smith. He’s had seven of them this season and probably a hundred in his career. Plus the Knicks played the Kings on Saturday. If you don’t drop 25 on the Kings then you basically aren’t an offensive player of any consequence.
So, why exactly am I presenting you with the news that JR Smith scored 25 points...
JR Smith’s shooting is generally considered to be a strength in his game, but it was the source of embarrassment on Monday.
Smith shot 5-for-15 from the field and went 1-of-2 at the free throw line in the New York Knicks’ 99-85 win over the Detroit Pistons. A career 74.5 percent shooter from the line, Smith had 16 points which is right on his season average, but he airballed...
Before transferring to Louisville, J.R. Smith’s younger brother, Chris, played for Manhattan College – where the two were spotted enjoying the action and putting up some halftime shots on Sunday. Manhattan went on to beat St. Peter’s 57-49.
The New York Knicks handled the Detroit Pistons last night 99-85. J.R. Smith made the boring game interesting with a free throw air ball that his teammates laughed at, and a little scrimmage with kids during half time. You just never know what you're going to get with this guy, other than 16 points per game. Videos are below for a good laugh.

Take a look back at Mount Carmel High (Ill.) junior defensive end Enoch Smith Jr., in the 8A State Championship game in Champaign.
Lenzelle Smith Jr. had 21 points and No. 11 Ohio State held off a late Nebraska surge for a 63-56 victory Saturday night.
Ohio State (17-4, 7-2 Big Ten) led 53-38 after a pair of free throws by Aaron Craft with 9:05 left. Nebraska (11-12, 2-8) then made its comeback, outscoring the Buckeyes 15-5 and cutting the lead to 58-53 on David Rivers' free throws with 2:40 remaining....
Welcome, readers, to the NBA247365.COM video podcast, episode two! For this edition I, Stephen Coston, am joined by NBA247365.COM/ESPN True Hoop Network contributor Jacob Frankel (@jacob_frankel) primarily to discuss this past weekend in NBA basketball. From Kyrie Irving’s crunch-time exploits to JR Smith’s garbage-time domination, it was certainly an exhilarating two-day...
Knicks 120 Kings 81
The New York Knicks had one of those games tonight in the positive column for the first time in many months. They routed the Kings 120-81 in a type of rout that I have not seen in many years. This was one of the biggest blowouts in team history and they are now 15 games over .500 and 30-15 to tie Miami for the number one seed in the Eastern Conference...
