BOSTON — The Boston Celtics will face one less high-powered scorer with their season on the line today against the New York Knicks.
New York guard J.R. Smith has been suspended for one game without pay after throwing an elbow that connected with Jason Terry's chin in New York's Game 3 win over the Celtics.
Smith was whistled for a flagrant-2 foul at the time, and was ejected from the game with 7:06 to play in the fourth quarter.
The two face off today at 1 p.m. with the Knicks holding a 3-0 series lead. If the Knicks win today, Boston's season will be over while the Knicks will then move on to the Eastern Conference semi-finals.
