JR Smith seems to walk back reason for play at end of Game 1

JR Smith LeBron James

J.R. Smith seems to have admitted that he wasn’t quite forthcoming with his explanation for his mistake late in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Smith grabbed an offensive rebound off a missed George Hill free throw and dribbled out the clock at the end of the fourth quarter, seemingly thinking the Cleveland Cavaliers were ahead when they were actually tied. After the game, Smith claimed he knew the score and was waiting for someone to call timeout.

On Saturday, he seemed to hedge a bit on his own explanation.

Smith messed up. Everyone knows it, in spite of his efforts to save face. On Sunday, he’ll have a chance to make things right and put it all behind him.
