Rookie Anthony Bennett is playing his first ever professional basketball game in New York City on Thursday night, and J.R. Smith has made sure he will never forget it.
Midway through the first quarter of the Cleveland Cavaliers – New York Knicks game, the Knicks shooting guard welcomed Bennett to Madison Square Garden. He drove baseline past the Cavaliers forward before throwing down an impressive windmill dunk, giving his team a 24-9 lead.
At halftime, the Knicks lead the Cavs 60-36. Smith has 11 points on 4-of-9 shooting while Bennett has 2 points off the bench.
