The New York Knicks are currently 3-1 in the Playoffs against the Indiana Pacers, and J.R. Smith is the reason…according to him.
“I take the blame for this whole series,” Smith said after their Game 4 loss. “It started off with Game 4 in Boston or Game 5. I haven’t been playing myself. I haven’t been playing my part. I’ve been letting my teammates down. I’ve been letting my coaches down.”
“I have to play more efficient,” he added.. “I don’t make excuses. I got to be able to step up and do what I do.”
In nine games, J.R. is averaging 14.3 points per game on 33.6 percent shooting. He has made just 15 of his 53 3-point attempts (28 percent).
