The New York Knicks were getting clobbered by the Golden State Warriors last night and it seems frustration set in for Knicks' J.R. Smith that he took it out on Warriors' Harrison Barnes.
However, here's the thing… I think he should not have been tossed after official review.
Looking at the video below, it is clear Smith came down hard on Barnes to stop an easy bucket but he did not wind back to land a hit on Barnes? No. Should he have gotten a flagrant-1? Yes. Was this a malicious hit? No.
Check out the video below of Smith's hard foul on Barnes and you be the judge.
