JR Smith shocked everyone when he wandered off the court mid-game against the Milwaukee Bucks to give veteran Jason Terry a hug, allowing his man to get a free bucket.
The Cavs went on to lose the affair 101-118 and Smith has hardly been on a roll as of late.
The shooting guard re-signed after a long and drawn out process in the summer to a four-year $57 million contract, but he has shot just 3-of-29 in his last three games.
His coach, Tyronn Lue, wasn't best pleased with the play either, or his postgame explanation where he insisted "he didn't even know" he was in the game.
"Me and J.R. talked about it," Lue said Wednesday, per The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer. "We're just going to move forward. We had a discussion about it, he felt embarrassed about it, it was an embarrassing play. We talked about it. We're moving on."
Smith also explained his postmatch interview by claiming he didn't want to give a boring answer to the media.
"I said it more in a joking manner because you can see what happened, obviously I wasn't paying attention," Smith said. "For me to just sit there and tell you I wasn't paying attention makes it plain and boring somewhat, especially when you're asking a question you already know the answer to. But at the same time, I still have to give that boring answer, for whatever reason."
