Josh Smith gets so confused by turnover it causes him to not get back on defense

Well, add another blunder to the season for J-Smoove. Josh Smith was attempting an entry pass to Donatas Motiejunas that was stolen by Paul Millsap (who was guarding Smith). Instead of getting back...

Houston’s Josh Smith denies Terrence Ross at the rim

Toronto’s Terrence Ross must have had a huge dinner because he just got stuffed! OK that was a lame attempt but Ross did have his dunk attempted rejected by Rockets’ Josh Smith (yes he did play defense) in last night’s clash. Ross seemingly had a wide-open baseline and had the ball and his arm cocked back to throw it down but Smith had other ideas in mind. The post Houston’s...
