Last night the Golden State Warriors crushed the Cleveland Cavaliers in game two of the NBA Finals to go 2-0 up in the series. It emphasised just how big the missed opportunity was last week, when JR Smith failed to shoot in the dying moments of game one.

Instead, the game went to overtime and the Warriors won 124-114. They followed that up with a 122-103 victory last night.
Now, Ballislife.com have posted raw footage of the moments immediately after J.R. Smith's costly mistake. Lebron James appears to ask if they had a time-out left, which they did. Had Smith called that or taken the shot they may have won the game.

For James, he has a welcomed home tie next up as the sides meet for game three in the early hours of Thursday morning.
