J.R. Smith Sends Tristan Thompson to Floor with Smooth Step-Back Jumper

Kyle Newport@@KyleNewportFeatured ColumnistJanuary 31, 2014

It wasn't enough for the New York Knicks to hold a huge lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers all night on Thursday. Knicks guard J.R. Smith rubbed some salt in the Cavs' wound, too.

Smith made the Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson look silly after he stopped on a dime and took a step back. Not only did the Cleveland forward end up splayed out on the floor, but he had to watch Smith drain a jumper.

It doesn't look any better for Thompson from above:

Ouch.
