Found April 27, 2013 on BlackSportsOnline:
    Over his career, New York Knicks guard JR Smith has been known to commit the occasional “bonehead” type of play. Whether it is an extremely bad shot that didn’t come in the flow of the offense, or questionable decision making, Smith always does something along those lines. One of the keys to his successful season and ultimately winning the NBA’s Sixth Man of the ear award, is the fact that he has played much smarter basketball. Many credit his head coach Mike Woodson for the transformation but I give a lot of credit to Smith himself. He seemed to mature a lot this year and the Knicks need him to continue to play well if they have any hope of winning a title. But last night, the old JR Smith returned. Watch the footage below as Smith feels he is fouled by the Celtics’ Jason Terry and subsequently elbows him near his face that results in him being ejected. Thanks to Beyond the Buzzer for the video.
