How JR Smith's Blunder Will Affect Cleveland Cavaliers' Mentality

According to Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania, the Warriors All-Star is receiving "around the clock" medical treatment for a high left ankle sprain he suffered during Game 1 against the Cavaliers.

LeBron James #23 of the Cleveland Cavaliers attempts a shot over Draymond Green #23 and Stephen Curry #30 of the Golden State Warriors during the fourth quarter.

Instead, Smith got the star treatment at Oracle Arena before Golden State's 122-103 win Sunday.

Fans have used all means available to mock Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith's late-game mistake in Game 1. "Listen, they've had a two-time MVP sit out playoff games, and they've won, all right".

Most of the scrutiny after the game was focussed on a freakish sequence in the dying seconds of regular time when J.R. Smith opted to dribble the ball out, thinking his team were in the lead. "It doesn't look better, but the docs told me it's better". They're good. They're great, actually.

Cleveland's superstar could also reach the top five in NBA Finals rebounds, as he enters nine behind Tom Heinsohn (473) for the No. 5 spot.


Forgetting those final few seconds of Game 1 needs to be a priority for the Cavs. Just 2 for 10 at halftime, he made all four shots, including three 3-pointers, and is up to 20 points.

With the score tied at 107 following George Hill's missed free throw, Smith should have taken a shot or passed to LeBron James before time expired to try and win the game.

Las Vegas is thinking Golden State in Game 2 of the NBA Finals - and big. The Warriors were 13 of 15 from inside the arc in the opening quarter.

David Guthrie, welcome to the NBA Finals.

Cleveland is off to a good start in what is usually Golden State's quarter. He's working alongside Mike Callahan - who is the most experienced referee assigned to this series. But even with all of that working in ABC's favor, the television rating for Game 1 was ever-so-slightly down from a year ago. which was slightly down from the year before that.

Also part of the crew will be Derrick Stafford, who was picked as a finals ref for the eighth time. "That's on me to kind of know the flow of the game".
