Cavs' best effort not good enough to beat the Warriors

Share

Oh, J.R. Smith. NBA fans love the Cleveland Cavs' shooting guard for reasons both ridiculous and poignant.

The Cavs had a Game 3 win within reach Wednesday night, but the Golden State Warriors came storming back with an 11-0 run to take a commanding 3-0 series lead in the NBA Finals.

But that didn't stop Smith's account from posting a tweet that the Cavaliers will actually come back to win this series in seven games.

After being blasted for speaking too soon after a loss, the tweet disappeared from Smith's timeline.

He tells Cleveland.com, "I got out of the shower and my phone was buzzing". "I'm smarter than that".

However, Smith still believes the Cavs have a chance. "I would be much smarter than that than to tweet that at literally 12:04, right after the game".

Smith, 31, admitted that he believed in the message that the Cavaliers could become the first National Basketball Association team to overcome a 3-0 deficit in a playoff series. Game 4 is Friday at 9 p.m.at Quicken Loans Arena.
