J.R. Smith’s season has been as streaky as his shooting. The same can be said about the New York Knicks, who oddly enough seem to thrive when Smith is playing well.
The Atlantic division leaders are in the midst of a 5-game winning streak which doesn’t seem that impressive with the Miami Heat 27-game winning streak still alive, but this team was floundering just over a week ago.
The Knicks are coming off the dismantling of the Boston Celtics last night, who can potentially be their first-round opponents when the playoffs start. And at the end of the third quarter Smith showed his currently hot form dropping 32 points including a buzzer-beating trey from around 30 feet.

J.R’s Maturation as a Player:
J.R. Smith has always been an interesting but polarizing NBA character.

We all remember where we were that day in February, when it was reported that during a conversation in Philly with a female, J.R. Smith cut right to the chase and asked the young lady “if she was trying to get the pipe.” Smith who has had some classic moments during his career, entered became a social media legend that night. Knicks Wall is now honoring that night, by selling...
Remember when a Twitter direct message (DM) leaked with JR Smith asking a girl in Philly if she was “trying to get the pipe?” The genius people at “The Knicks Wall” thought that would be a great slogan for a t-shirt, along with a cartoon version of “Swish” Smith, tattoos included. The shirt is going for $28.99. I hope they plan on giving JR a piece of the cut. What a...
In the history of men, we have you used some terrible pick-up lines to attempt to woo women and recently, New York Knicks guard J.R. Smith attempted to sex up a lady by using the pick-up line, "You Trying To Get The Pipe".Since that memorable line came out, someone decided to make a t-shirt about it and below is an image that might cause a gaffaw or two:(Courtesy of Complex)
JR Smith is currently having one hell of a game against the Boston Celtics. He has thirty points through three quarters and nailed this ridiculous three pointer from way downtown just before the end of the third quarter.

For most of the night, we didn’t think the New York Knicks would need things like a clutch Jason Kidd three and the need to make late free throws in order to beat the Memphis Grizzlies. The Knicks’ scorching first half made it seem like we’d be watching Chris Copeland dominating garbage time, Steve Novak making meaningless threes while Carmelo Anthony and J.R. Smith made fun...
