Smith returns tonight but Cavs could lose services of injured Shumpert

The Cleveland Cavaliers are 1-1 in their NBA Eastern Conference Semifinals series against the Chicago Bulls.

They have so far survived a season-ending shoulder injury to Kevin Love and a two-game suspension to J.R. Smith.

Tonight, the Cavs get Smith back but there is another obstacle in their way.

Head coach David Blatt says that the team could be without the services of Iman Shumpert for the Game 3 matchup in Chicago.

Shumpert is recovering from a strained groin injury suffered in the second half of Game 2, a 106-91 blowout by the Cavs at home on Wednesday.

The 6’5, 220-pound, 24-year-old Shumpert, a sharpshooting guard, made four 3-point baskets and 15 points filling in for Smith. Shumpert also played well in Game 1, netting 22 points.

Everyone who follows the Cavaliers, media and fans, all agree that the January 5 trade with the New York Knicks that brought J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert gave the team the needed push and it has resulted in 16 wins in 18 games and the team to a 35-22 record and a definitely threat in the Eastern Conference.

Sunday afternoon, Smith and Shumpert made their first return to the Big Apple and played well in Cleveland’s 101-83 win over the Knicks.

Smith scored 17 points and Shumpert came off the bench for four points, five rebounds and seven assists.

Sunday’s game was really over early as the Cavs built up a 36-17 lead in the first quarter and a 62-38 advantage at the half. From there, it was just a matter of what the final score would be.

Cleveland’s big three pulled their weight as well.

LeBron James and Kyrie Irving each scored 18 points and Kevin Love finished with 16 points while hauling down 16 rebounds. James during the game moved past Allen Iverson and into 22nd place on the NBA career scoring list with 24,383 points.

The Knicks, who have had several losing streaks this season with a 10-45 record, have now lost seven in a row, were led by Langston Galloway with 13 points.

DENVER NUGGETS-UTAH JAZZ


Carmelo Anthony scored a playoff career-high 42 points and J.R. Smith’s fourth-quarter flurry of 3-pointers helped Denver beat Utah in Game 1 in Denver of the Western Conference playoff series.

Anthony, whose previous playoff high was 41 points against Dallas in the second round last year, benefitted from the absence of Utah Jazz forward Andrei Kirelenko who would’ve been guarding him. Kirelenko will not play in the series due to a re-injured left calf strain.
