Cleveland Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith finished the Cavs' Game 2 loss on Sunday with zero points on two shot attempts, adding two rebounds and one turnover in 14 minutes. A win would have taken everyone back to the team's epic comeback previous year when they lost two in Oakland, came back and won Game 3 in Cleveland en route to a historic 1-3 comeback.
Bless you, J.R. Smith.
The tweet was then deleted only minutes later, but it had already received more than 20,000 retweets.
Before Game 3, the Cleveland Police Department was one of several fans tweeting trash talk at Golden State.

The pair were visiting London for the weekend when they became caught up in the attack which left seven people dead. Mr Thomas's next of kin have been told, police said, but formal identification has not yet taken place.
You can't blame fans for assuming Smith posted the message, either.
He later told Cleveland.com, "I got out of the shower and my phone was buzzing".
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.
But this time Smith says he's innocent. "I'm smarter than that". "I did not tweet that", Smith told me as he walked out of the locker room after his postgame interview session before a crowd of cameras at his locker. It's done. There is no coming back from this.
