Victor Cruz critiques JR Smith salsa moves

Victor Cruz has some pointers on how to salsa for his good friend J.R. Smith, who did Cruz’s patented dance after hitting a game-winning shot at the buzzer to beat Charlotte on Wednesday.

“We got to go to the drawing board a little bit, it was a little stiff at the end,” Cruz joked. “We’ll get that squared away.”

Cruz and Smith grew up in New Jersey and even played AAU ball together when they were teenagers. After practice Wednesday, Cruz tuned in to watch Smith and the Knicks take on the Bobcats. With the game tied at 98-98, Smith hit a fadeaway buzzer-beater to give the Knicks the 100-98 win. Smith scored 13 points on 6-of-16 shooting Wednesday, including 1-of-9 from 3.
