Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith returned Thursday night against the Detroit Pistons in his first game since fracturing the thumb on his right shooting hand in December.
Smith came of the bench and played 19 minutes in the Cavs’ 106-101 loss. “I felt good,” Smith said. “Just trying to get used to running up and down the floor again. But I felt better than I thought I was going to be. My shots were short and didn’t fall so I just tried to make an impact on the defensive end when I was out there.”
