This week's honor goes to a player who has stepped up to be the Scottie Pippen or James Worthy of the New York Knicks (to Carmelo Anthony) in being a key element of what is an eight game winning streak for the club. J.R. Smith was phenomenal, averaging 30 points per game, defeating the rival Boston Celtics twice, pouring in 32 points or more in 3 of the 4 games. And he's not even a starter. But as the Heat appear knicked, I mean nicked up, the Knicks appear poised to test them in the playoffs. But J.R. Smith wins this week's Longhorndave Sportsman of the Week!
