Even though the Cleveland Cavaliers are in a 3-0 hole against the Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals, guard J.R. Smith remains confident.
After losing 118-113 on Wednesday night at Quicken Loans Arena, Smith took to Twitter to guarantee the Cavs would win the series in seven games. He quickly deleted the tweet shortly after publishing it.
Here’s the tweet:

In Game 3, Smith had 16 points on 5-of-10 shooting. Other than LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, Smith is the only Cavs player to score in double digits for the game.
