J.R. Smith made his arrival to the court prior Thursday night, amid the Cleveland Cavaliers’ matchup against the Pistons in Detroit. He came off the bench, and struggled a bit to recapture his rhythm in the main half, as he went only 1 of 5 from the field in the opening 24 minutes.
His one basket, however, demonstrated that J.R. will always be J.R. After somewhat of a misthrown go from LeBron, Smith got himself somewhere down in the corner, which is not by any stretch of the imagination where you need to be as a hostile player. Be that as it may, J.R. Smith did the main thing he knows how to do: he let a shot fly anyway.

He needed a little luck to make it happen, but J.R. Smith is on the board in his return to action, and it happened in the most J.R. Smith way possible.
