The Cleveland Cavaliers had a chance to steal homecourt advantage from the defending champs when George Hill was fouled with 4.7 seconds remaining and the Dubs leading, 107-106. Hill made his first free throw then missed the second to tie the game, which set the stage for a JR Smith heroic after the latter secured the offensive rebound.
What happened next will haunt Smith for the rest of his career:
Several prominent figures from the basketball circle can't believe what the veteran guard just did.
It didn't take long before the rest of social media feasted on the clutch blunder, which coach Tyronn Lue confirmed was a result of Smith being unaware of the score and thinking they were ahead. This immortalized the Cavs guard as the official meme of the ongoing Finals. (Your move, Nick Young.)
Stay off the Hennessy, bruh
There's gonna be some furniture moving in the Cavs locker room
Tell it to the judge
That would be a lonely trip to Cleveland
