Bill Simmons trolls J.R. Smith with NBA Green Week comment (Video)
The New York Knicks fell to the Miami Heat 102-91 on Sunday, but J.R. Smith set a couple of records during the process. Smith hoisted an NBA-record 22 three-pointers, making a Knicks-record ten of them on the way to 32 points.
Sunday’s performance comes on the heels of a 32-point outing against the Washington Wizards on Friday that saw Smith drain eight three-pointers.
J.R. Smith’s recent barrage of long distance buckets has coincided with NBA Green Week (April 3-10), when the league aims to raise awareness and funds to help protect the environment.
Of course, “green” and J.R. Smith have become joined at the hip for another reason since the guard tested positive for marijuana and was suspended for the first five games of this season. And ESPN’s Bill Simmons took the opportunity to capitalize on the moment that presented itself.
Here are all ten of J.R. Smith’s threes from Sunday’s game.
