10) In Game 1 of the NBA Finals, George Hill missed a free-throw that could have given the Cavaliers a lead with 4.7 seconds left against Golden State and Cleveland’s J.R. Smith failed to get a timeout called with time running out. Smith had the ball with seconds remaining, but apparently believed the Cavaliers were leading instead of tied. Smith dribbled away from the basket after a rebound late in the game. LeBron James tried to steer him the right way.  The game went into overtime and Golden State pulled away.
