It must be said that Smith's blunder nearly completely overshadowed the mistakes of Golden State's Kevin Durant, who allowed Smith to grab the offensive rebound, and Cleveland's George Hill, who could have given the Cavaliers the lead by making his second free throw (after hitting the first attempt).
J.R. Smith's late-game blunder in Game 1 of the NBA Finals is only one of the many curious mistakes that he's made since putting on a Cleveland Cavaliers uniform, yet this one might just be the one straw that broke the camel's back. "So I stopped, and the game was over".
George Hill missed his second free throw and Smith grabbed the offensive rebound but instead of shooting ran the ball out past the three-point line.

Smith himself, meanwhile, insisted he knew what he was doing all along.

"There wasn't any bad blood until the last few seconds of the game", Durant, who scored 26 points, told ESPN.
For the Golden State Warriors, it is Kevin Durant. James has eight games with 40 or more points in these playoffs, matching Jerry West for the most such games in a single postseason. I tried to get enough space because Kevin (Durant) was standing right there. And by the end of a hot-tempered overtime, Curry and James, two of the NBA's signature players, were jawing at each other like genuine rivals.
"I read that play as well as I've read any play in my career, maybe in my life", he added.
"We had doubt as to whether or not James was in the restricted area", Mauer said.
