We've seen the J.R. Smith memes, GIFs and jokes all over social media. The backlash has been relentless.

Smith said he wasn't sure of the score at the end of regulation in Game 1. With the game tied and four seconds to go, Smith grabbed the offensive rebound and dribbled out instead of shooting or passing quickly. The game then went into overtime, which we all sadly know the Cavs lost. Smith was caught on camera telling LeBron, "I thought we were ahead."

This is different than what he originally said at the end of Game 1 on Thursday when he said he knew the game was tied at 107. He said he "might have said" he thought his team was ahead, but he's not sure, according to ESPN.

Game 1 slipped through our hands, but the Cavs are looking for some redemption in Game 2.
