We've all seen JR Smith's inexplicable possession at the end of Game 1, but have you seen the reaction from the Cavs' bench? This uncut footage of LeBron James, Smith and George Hill when the Cavs are forced into overtime is hard to watch.

It's no shock the Warriors blew past the Cavaliers at the start of the overtime. Pay attention to James' reaction at the 1:35 mark when he asks coach Ty Lue if they had any remaining timeouts. When he learns they still had one timeout, you can see the weight of the season come tumbling down on James.

It was a defining moment in the series so far for what could have been a showstopping win, but instead, it was a disappointing loss.
