Should the Cleveland Cavaliers get a therapy dog to help JR Smith's game?

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - JR Smith had one of this best games for the Cavaliers of the NBA season on Wednesday night, and it came after a therapy dog visited the team's morning meal and meetings.

Smith himself posted on Instagram that he has a new best friend named REMINGTON (yes it's spelled in all caps):

HomeRunREMI as he's called is so famous, even before kicking Smith's game in the tail, he even has his own Twitter page.

The dog is a part of the University of North Carolina Baseball team and is used as a therapy dog.

There may be a bone to pick with the idea of getting a dog for the Cavs when you compare Smith's numbers before and after the furry friend visit.
