Lue: J.R. Smith’s In-Game Hug ’embarrassing moment’


Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue called J.R. Smith’s in-game hug with a Milwaukee Bucks bench player — leading to a wide-open score for the opposition — an “embarrassing moment” and met with the Cavs guard to address the mental lapse Wednesday.

“It was an embarrassing moment,” Lue said. “Me and J.R. talked about it. 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.”
