Jr Smith’s Late Blunder Leads To Golden State Warriors’ Wild Game 1 Win. OAKLAND, Calif. — The enduring image from Thursday’s Game 1 of the NBA Finals won’t be one of LeBron James’ powerful dunks or Stephen Curry’s 38-footer to beat the first-half buzzer. Instead, Game 1 will be remembered as the night JR Smith dribbled out the clock in a tie game. A back-and-forth final five minutes culminated in Cleveland Cavaliers guard George Hill at the free throw line with 4.7 seconds remaining with a chance to win the game. After hitting his first attempt to tie the score, Hill missed his second. Smith recovered the rebound, but instead of firing up a shot that could have given Cleveland — a 13-point underdog entering the game — an unlikely road win, he retreated to the perimeter, thinking the Cavaliers held the lead, waiting for a foul that never came.
