Mike Woodson may limit J.R. Smith's minutes if shots keep missingThe New York Knicks are in the second round of the NBA playoffs, playing the Indiana Pacers. The series is tied 1-1. The Knicks can't be happy that they lost a game at home, but there is no reason to panic just yet.

However, a concern has been the shooting of super bench scorer J.R. Smith. If the bricks keep coming, Knicks head coach Mike Woodson may have to cut Smith's minutes shorter than he'd normally like.

Per Marc Berman of the New York Post, "For the first time, the Knicks coach said he will have a quicker hook with the Sixth Man Award winner if his shooting woes continue. Smith’s jump shot has been in the gutter since returning in Game 5 of the first round against Boston after serving a one-game suspension for elbowing Jason Terry. “If he’s struggling and I feel the need, I got to pull him,” Woodson said on his ESPN Radio show yesterday. “I will do that as head coach.” Following Tuesday’s victory over Indiana in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, Smith admitted, “My shot is lost for now.’’

Game 3 of the series is Saturday night in Indiana.
