Did JR Smith deserve this flagrant 2 foul call during Knicks vs. Warriors?

JR Smith was ejected from Monday night’s match up against the Golden State Warriors for a flagrant 2 foul on this play in the third quarter. A flagrant 2 foul is an automatic ejection. Check the play and see if you agree with the call.   I think this call should be rescinded. If the Serge Ibaka shot against Blake Griffin wasn’t a flagrant 2, how can you call this one?   source
