J.R. Smith Wants to See Matt Barnes-Derek Fisher Rematch: It Would Be a Good One

Thomas DuffyFeatured Columnist IVDecember 20, 2016

Forget Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz. J.R. Smith wants to see Matt Barnes and Derek Fisher throw down again.

Hours after Fisher addressed the situation on Thursday, TMZ caught up with the Cleveland Cavaliers shooting guard, who played under Fisher with the New York Knicks last year.

Smith seemed pretty guarded with his responses until the reporter asked who would win in a rematch.

“I don’t know,” Smith said. “Matt could get pretty out of control. Derek does a lot of weightlifting, so he’s kinda strong. It’d be a good one. I would love to see that."

Us, too, J.R.
