BEST OF MAXIM
J.R. Smith is enjoying a stretch in which he is playing the best basketball of his career. He’s currently averaging 18.2 points per game this season, which is second on the club trailing only Carmelo Anthony.

For Thanksgiving this year, I will say that I am thankful that Rasheed Wallace is back in my life.
