Watch: JR Smith get standing ovation at Oracle Arena

#Jr Smith

The most popular players in Oracle Arena for Game 2 between Cleveland and Golden State may actually be Cavaliers.

At least, that is what would be indicated by the cheer during team introductions.

The reception, of course, stems from the key roles Smith and Hill played in the final 4.7 seconds of regulation in Game 1.

Hill had a chance to put the Cavaliers ahead with the second of two free throws Thursday, but clanked his attempt off the front of the rim.

His failure though was only made worse by Smith's actions.

The Cleveland guard grabbed the rebound, but had lost track of the score and actually ran the ball away from the basket forcing overtime where the Cavaliers would eventually fall 124-114.

Golden State fans are clearly grateful. In fact, one fan brought a sign to the game emblazoned with "JR Smith you da real MVP."
