Cavs suspended JR Smith for throwing soup at coach

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Le Bron James has often shown his frustration with JR Smith this season

Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith has been suspended one game by the team for detrimental conduct.

Jones played with the Cavaliers from 2005 to 2008.

Sip that in. because that's why the Cleveland Cavs suspended the National Basketball Association star for Thursday's game against the 76ers. Now we know exactly what Smith did to warrant the suspension.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said Smith did not address the team over the latest drama for a team that has had no shortage of theatre this season.

Turns out J.R. Smith landed in hot water for - well, throwing hot water.

Smith was at shootaround Thursday, according to ESPN.

Smith has started 56 games, averaging 8.3 points and is shooting 36 per cent on 3-pointers.

In his absence, Rodney Hood - who finished with 11 points, five assists, and five boards - made his first start for the Cavs in their losing performance against the process-trusting Sixers. Wade was traded to Miami at the deadline, and the move seemed to invigorate Smith. He's been with the Cavs organization as a coach since 2014, beginning with the team's G League affiliate, the Canton Charge. Smith is set to return to practice Friday, according to ESPN. After that session, Jones participated in a contest with Cavs guard George Hill and Jones boasted about his prowess, saying, "When the camera's on is when I'm at my best".
