Tyronn Lue on the NBA's last two minute report that determined J.R. Smith shouldn't have been called for a foul on Evan Turner late against Boston on Friday: "It's over now. I don't think that play had anything to do with it. I just think it was a bunch of things that led to that situation, so it happened. They say it wasn't a foul, but there's nothing we can do about it now."
