NFL Twitter reacts to a crazy Game 1 of the NBA Finals

  • Thompson Steph Curry Kevin Durant and the true dawning of a historic 1-2 punch

While there was enough blame to go around for a handful of people, including and especially the referees, it was the Cleveland Cavaliers' guard J.R. Smith who commanded the most attention in his team's overtime loss to the Golden State Warriors.

Perhaps the most exciting part of overtime was the Draymond Green-Tristan Thompson scuffle, but even then, the win was secured for the Warriors at that point.

In overtime, the defending champion Warriors eased away from the Cavs, who had entered the game as massive underdogs.

The reporter then asked James whether he knew if Smith knew the score, prompting the 33-year-old forward to abruptly get up and leave the conference before pointing to the reporter and telling him to "be better tomorrow".

Do us all a favor and never change, J.R....

It was a game to forget for Cleveland's Smith, whose spectacular brain fade saw the contest head to OT in the Bay Area. "It was a huge play, a huge play". "I'd seen the play happening". I knew I was outside the charge line, so that's what the communication was to us. "I don't know what else to say".

George Hill hit his first of two free throws to tie the game with 4.7 seconds to play.

Hill made the first attempt but missed his second.

Inexplicably, however, instead of firing up a shot that could have granted the Cavs an unlikely win, Smith dribbled towards the perimeter.

Lue said Smith thought the Cavs were ahead but Smith said he thought the game was tied and was trying for a final shot.

One NewsOne reader shared another meme with us in what is bound to be an endless stream of artistic endeavors.

"It was a tie ballgame and we had a timeout", Smith said, via Dave McMenamin of ESPN.

That individual effort was nearly enough to overcome the trifecta of Klay Thompson (24), Steph Curry (29 points) and Kevin Durant (26) combining for 79 points. I tried to get enough space to maybe get a shot off.

Game 2 is this Sunday, and the Cavs have to execute just as well, if not better, because they most certainly can't go back to Cleveland down 2-0 and hold the Larry O'Brien Trophy later this month. Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said Smith mistakenly thought the team was leading, and didn't need the basket. The injury did not appear to have a major impact on James' play as he scored a playoff career high with 50 points in a losing effort.
