James posted the first 50-point game in the finals since Michael Jordan did it 25 years ago and had the Cavaliers in position to stun the heavily favored Warriors in the opener before a disputed replay overturn and Smith's blunder turned the tide in Golden State's favor.
Stephen Curry ended the game with 29 points for the Warriors while Durant finished with 26 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists with nine points coming from free throws.
James' expression for Smith after his last-minute mistake created a huge stir on social media.
Actually, Smith suddenly realized his error and threw the ball to Hill in the corner, but his shot came after the buzzer and missed anyway. I look over at Lebron and he was trying to get a timeout and I just stopped and the game was over. "Rewatching the free throw, re-watching the play, just going over my head what I think went wrong and things like that". He was then escorted off of the court before things got any more serious.
"I knew it was tied", Smith insisted afterward.

"I don't care what era you pick, there's never been a greater shooter than Steph Curry". "I mean, obviously, if they're doing some taunting or doing some insane stuff, that's a little different".
James answered with an impressive drive, changing hands in midair before scoring to give the Cavs the lead.

James, who has carried his fourth-seeded Cavs to his eighth consecutive NBA Finals, said the key to success would be staying aggressive and getting his team mates involved.
He made 19 of 32 shots, added eight rebounds and eight assists and played almost 48 minutes for a third straight game. So, Lue was asked, can James play any better as the series goes on?
"For our team to come out and play their hearts out and compete the way we did, man, I mean, it's bad", Lue said.
