GREENBURGH, N.Y. — J.R. Smith says the Knicks would’ve swept the Celtics had he been playing in Game 4 on Sunday.

“Oh, yeah, it’d been over, it would’ve been over,” he said Tuesday after practice. “I would’ve been playing golf today.’

After being suspended one game for elbowing Jason Terry in the face in Game 3, Smith watched on TV as the Knicks lost Game 4, 97-90, in OT.

Now, he says he’s fresh and motivated for Game 5 Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden, where the Knicks will try to close out the series.
