J.R. Smith close first half of Game 5 with deep 3-pointer (video)


The Warriors blew Game 5 of the NBA Finals open with a 22-2 second-quarter run, but the Cavaliers salvaged the quarter by closing it on an 8-2 run – capped by this J.R. Smith 3-pointer.

Smith, who’s quite comfortable shooting to end quarters, even celebrated in style.

Frank Isola of the New York Daily News:

Can the Cavs ride that late momentum back from a 71-60 halftime deficit? It looks unlikely, but at least they’re still in the game.
