LeBron James: J.R. Smith the only Cavs player with ‘ultra-green light’
The Cavaliers just set the NBA record for made threes in a game, with 25 long-balls against the Hawks in Game 2 of the East semifinals.
Unsurprisingly, LeBron James was called to the podium afterward. More surprisingly, so was J.R. Smith, who hit seven of 13 three-point attempts on his way to 23 points in the 123–98 victory.
James was asked what it would be like to play like his teammate, just for one game.
His answer? “J.R., he’s the only one on the team that has the ultra-green light. It’s like, fluorescent.”
