JR Smith sure appeared to think the Cavs were up when he was dribbling out at the end of regulation, but that’s not what he’s telling reporters in the postgame:
However, in his postgame press conference, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said, “He thought it was over. He thought we were up one.”
This play is going to be remembered for a long, long time. I feel very bad for JR Smith, but it’s inconceivable that he would have dribbled out to where he did if he knew how much time was on the clock and that his team needed a bucket.
