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 a free throw during the second quarter. Smith’s free throw actually hit nothing but the bottom of the net. The only problem is it did not go through the actual cylinder first. After his miss, Smith gazed at teammate Amar’e Stoudemire in disbelief before shrugging it off with some laughs. Tyson Chandler and Carmelo Anthony could help themselves and busted out laughing on the bench. They could afford to — the Knicks had a huge lead at that point and won the game pretty easily.
