Larry Brown Sports:
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.

BEST OF MAXIM
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...
Last night the New York Knicks hosted the Detroit Pistons, winning the game 99-85. The interesting moment of the game came from Smith, however. Leave it to Smith to make a boring game interesting.
He kept the crowd and his team entertained after shooting an air ball during a free throw attempt. Then Smith tried to crash a scrimmage game against some kids during halftime.
For every little NBA fan, the possibility of playing on an NBA court is a dream that many would like to accomplish.During last night's Knicks/Pistons affair, a group of NYC kids got a chance to play on the hardwood floor of Madison Square Garden.Watch as Knicks guard J.R.

Big kid himself, J.R. Smith, tried to get in on the pee-wee halftime action during halftime of Monday night’s blowout to the Pistons:

PARTY IN THE BACK
Prior to this week, Phoenix Coyotes goalie Mike Smith had been growing out his hair for a very long time. As you can see from the photo above on the left, he had one of the raddest hairstyles in the NHL for all of last season and into this year. Many fans will be disappointed to hear that Smith recently cut his hair — until they see his new haircut. The photo above on the right...
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...
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...
