Historic Night For 51-Point LeBron, But Cavs Controversially Lose

LeBron James net worth

"That was 100% bad basketball IQ", one Twitter user wrote, while another pointed out "LeBron James really was a moment away from singlehandedly defeating 4 all-stars only to be foiled by JR Smith", referring to Bron's 50 plus points against a team stacked with so much talent.

"I thought I read that play better than any play in my career", James said afterwards.

Smith got the rebound and dribbled the ball out to the perimeter, seemingly thinking the Cavs had the lead and waiting for a foul, before passing the ball to Hill, who couldn't quite get off a last-second shot.

The Warriors dominated overtime, outscoring the Cavaliers 17-7, while tempers flared as Tristan Thompson was ejected for an altercation with Draymond Green.

LeBron James has literally carried the Cleveland Cavaliers on his shoulders throughout the tournament and if it wasn't for his brilliance the Cavs would have been eliminated a lot earlier in the season. LeBron James, who finished with 51 points, eight rebounds, and eight assists, revealed that Smith didn't even bother to address his teammates about the crucial mistake.

"I was trying to get enough to bring it out to get a shot off", Smith was quoted as saying by ESPN.

"To do what he did tonight and come out robbed, it's just not right", Lue said. However, the Cavaliers' coach, Tyronn Lue, told reporters that Smith had told him he thought the team was up by 1 point and was trying to run out the clock.

After the game, James said he was furious with the officials' decision.

Some fans tried to point out that Smith's teammate Hill could've saved the game by making the free throw in the first place. The best two teams in the National Basketball Association are competing in the Finals, even though the one representing the Eastern Conference got there as a fourth seed. It's not like we're not the best friends, and I don't think you should be best friends with a player and an owner shouldn't be best friends unless I'm your father and that's my son, and, OK, cool we could be great then. I knew I was outside the charge line, and I knew I took the hit. "I knew we were tied; I thought we were going to call timeout".

Kerr insisted he wasn't surprised to see the Cavaliers, a distinct underdog in the series, put up such a tough fight.

Kevin Durant added 26 points, nine rebounds, six assists and three blocks, while Klay Thompson scored 24 points.
