Number of #Cavs players upset James Harden wasn't ejected for his groin kick on LeBron. "I thought it was a dirty play," JR Smith said.

Joe Gabriele

For #Cavs, @Kevin Love, 21pts, 8-16 FG, 5reb, 3asst; @Tristan Thompson, 6pts, game-hi-tying (w/@JR Smith) 8reb; @mozg25, 10pts, 5-8 FG.

Jenny Dial Creech

When JR Smith is the one holding people back from fights, you know it’s a chippy game.

Peter Vecsey

JR Smith is certifiable!! Refused to obey ref. pushing past him twice...

Tommy Beer

Shump and especially JR Smith are so so much more engaged defensively for Cleveland as compared to their time in NY this season.

Trey Kerby

Really hope some NBA player pays tribute to Anthony Mason with a hair etching. Looking at you, @JR Smith. RIP.

Royce Young

Some speculation Westbrook's dent could be a fracture of the zygomatic arch. JR Smith had one last year and played through it wearing a mask

Joe Gabriele

Quick @Matthew Dellavedova trey and nice feed from @JR Smith to @Tristan Thompson has shorthanded #Cavs within 4 -- 85-81, 1:35 to play.

Joe Gabriele

#Cavs trail, 74-61, after 3Q in Indy. @JR Smith still leads CLE w/15pts, 5-10 FG; @Kevin Love, 13pts, 7reb; @Iman Shumpert, 12pts, 5reb.

Candace Buckner

JR Smith has made a living making bad shots just like that one

Joe Gabriele

Shorthanded #Cavs down, 51-45, at H. @JR Smith leads CLE w/13pts, 4-8 FG, 3-3 3pt FG; @Matthew Dellavedova, 9pts, 7reb, 4asst.

Joe Gabriele

Sans LeBron and Kyrie, #Cavs still net 28 pts in 1Q, lead Indy - 28-19. @JR Smith leads everyone w/11pts, 4-6 FG, 3-3 3pt FG, 2asst.

Candace Buckner

Emphatic coach clapping from David Blatt after his #Cavs end the 1st Q with the 28-19 lead. CLE shot 46% and JR Smith leads all with 11 pts

Candace Buckner

JR Smith, wearing the same exact Kobe 10s that Paul George wore in his first full practice, pulls up from about 30 feet for that 3. Good

Candace Buckner

#Cavaliers starting lineup: Matthew Delladova, JR Smith, James Jones, Kevin Love and Timofey Mozgov > Timberwolves circa '12?

Sean Highkin

JR Smith had the same number of assists and field-goal attempts last night.

Monte Poole

Your ears aren't ready for this: "From Day 1, that guy has been a dream." #Cavs coach David Blatt on, ahem, JR Smith.

Tommy Beer

You know JR Smith is trying to make a good impression on his new teammates when he is passing up WIDE-open 3's... vine.co/v/O2nlq2r9tet

Kaan Kural

JR Smith konusunda cidden endişelenmeye başladım. NBA'in şuursuzluk referans noktasıyken sağduyu abidesi olmuş. Kıyamet alameti bunlar

Jason Lloyd

By the way, that was a terrific pass from JR Smith to Love in the corner. Six weeks ago with the Knicks, he's taking that himself.

Kaan Kural

JR Smith, Cleveland'a geldiğinden beri bi haller oldu... Dünya genelinden milyar tane "Allah akıl fikir versin" gelince vermiş galiba

Chris Sheridan

#Cavs are 17-7 since acquiring former #Knicks @JR Smith and @Iman Shumpert. We have more on how they've done it. wp.me/p1Ogzi-nca

Alan Hahn

Just facts and his own words! Thanks. RT @Fraser826: @Alan Hahn everything you are saying about jr smith is on point.

Trey Kerby

JR Smith's reverse oop was awesome, but banking in a corner three might even be harder to do: vine.co/v/OQ6B0aBwhvV

Al Iannazzone

Seems like old times for JR Smith and Shumpert in their Garden returns: newsday.com/sports/basketb…

Marc Berman

Did JR Smith taunt anyone from Knicks? That would be the only issue Jackson might have if it occurred. JR shook Dolan's hand at half.

Steve Popper

It was a homecoming party at the Garden for @JR Smith and @Iman Shumpert - although Phil Jackson didn't enjoy it: bit.ly/17N83Ib

LeBron James

Man that boy good!! Jumped onto the floor when @therealjrsmith did this today. Whoa!!!! Shump with the… instagram.com/p/za0ER-iTBr/

Tina Cervasio

On court @JR Smith Thanks #knicks fans, tapped logo"this place meant to much",spent time at Melo's"keeping his spirits up.He'll be OK"

Adam Zagoria

JR Smith told @Tina Cervasio he was with Melo last night trying to keep his spirits up and that Melo will be OK after the knee surgery.

Tina Cervasio

On @MSGNetworks Postgame my Dateline length int w @JR Smith coming up.Says a lot & he was at a recovering Carmelo's house last night.

Joe Gabriele

Very nice game by @Kevin Love (16pt, 16reb) and @JR Smith (17pts, 7-11 FG) in his return to Garden. #Cavs shoot 51% FG, hold NYK to 37%

Tommy Beer

Knicks traded away Shump & JR Smith and got back 3 players they immediately waived. Knicks traded for Bargnani and gave away a 1st rd pick

Travis Heath

Why do knuckleheads get seemingly unlimited chances in pro sports? For the opportunity (hope?) to get what Cavs are getting from JR Smith.

Joe Gabriele

#Cavs cruising, 81-55. Four Cavs - @LeBron James (18pt), @Kevin Love (16pt, 16reb), @Kyrie Irving (18), @JR Smith (12) in double-figures.

Ian Begley

Current and former #Knicks shooting guards today: Hardaway Jr.: 5 pts, 2-for-7 FG; JR Smith: 12 pts, 5-for-9 FG; Shumpert: 4 pts, 2-for-5 FG

Ian Begley

JR Smith's FG% is virtually the same in CLE & NY. He’s simply shooting - and making - more 3s w/the Cavs (1.3 per game w/NYK; 2.8 with CLE).

Brian Windhorst

JR Smith's numbers, both shooting & scoring, are almost identical in CLE compared to NY. He may not in clubs as much but his game is same.

Jason Lloyd

Chatted with JR Smith's dad, Earl, before game. Told him JR seems to really like playing in Cleveland. Earl corrected me. "No, he LOVES it"

Brian Mahoney

A lot of noise for JR Smith intro. Guessing he shoots 4 for 13, with one of the makes a halfcourt heave to end a quarter.

Michael Scotto

JR Smith makes his return to Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks. Here's a funny video tribute to him: youtube.com/watch?v=UGT1dQ…

Ian Begley

JR Smith's made errors in judgement but the guy has a good heart. Just spent a few minutes greeting some ushers/security guards at MSG.

Adam Zagoria

Derek Fisher on JR Smith in Cleveland: 'I'm sure he's just enjoying playing basketball more there.'

Adam Zagoria

Here at MSG for Cavs-Knicks where 40 percent of the Cavs starting lineup are former #Knicks: JR Smith & Timofey Mozgov. Shump off the bench
