Much-maligned Knicks guard J.R. Smith continued his zany season, aka 2013-14: A Shooting Odyssey, by scoring two more points than he had 3-point attempts. This is not necessarily weird unless you are informed that he took 17 attempts from the arc (!!!).
Now is it weird? No, you’re right, it’s something other than weird.
Hoops writers agreed on Twitter…
JR Smith has 17 points on 17 three pointers. Wait…..—

JR's 22 shots could have possibly created 61 points. JR has 17 points.—

J.R. Smith has taken 17 3s. If you haven't made 10 of those (he hasn't) then you suffer from Antoine Walker syndrome.—
