J.R. Smith Makes Big 3-Pointer, Celebrates Hysterically with Kyrie Irving

If championship rings were awarded for top-notch celebrations, then the Cleveland Cavaliers would be sitting pretty.

And although the squad is often spotted praising one another with a myriad of complex handshakes,  J.R. Smith and Kyrie Irving's tag team effort may trump them all.

The pair congregated at half court after Smith's dagger three-pointer all but secured a 120-111 victory over the Sacramento Kings—the first in a four-game West Coast road trip.

In an exhibition that could only be described as Vintage J.R., both guards took a knee, winding up one arm. 

Naturally, No. 5's own exuberance also emerged in a self-congratulatory move that was all his own.

And since championship rings are, in an indirect sense, awarded for team chemistry and confidence, then perhaps the Cavaliers are sitting pretty after all.
