Cavs suspended JR Smith for throwing bowl of soup at Damon Jones

  • Cavaliers suspend ex-Knick JR Smith 1 game for detrimental conduct

It appears we now know exactly how detrimental that conduct was.

That's a tough tag team to beat, but there were some strong efforts on Friday.

Nope, not a typo: Smith reportedly chucked a bowl of soup at a coach.

ESPN reported the details of the suspension Friday morning.

The Cavs announced the Smith suspension just two hours before the tip-off of Thursday night's loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.

In his 76ers' pregame press conference, Lue said Smith will regain his spot in the starting lineup against the Nuggets.

J.R. Smith weaponized soup. Earlier in the week, the Cleveland Cavaliers would suspend J.R. Smith for one game.

In the 2017 postseason, fivethirtyeight.com pointed out that Smith's postseason defense was statistically better against Indiana All-Star Paul George than Boston role player Avery Bradley. Smith is averaging 8.3 points a game in about 30 minutes a night and is a threat from three opponents must respect.

In his absence, Rodney Hood - who finished with 11 points, five assists, and five boards - made his first start for the Cavs in their losing performance against the process-trusting Sixers.
