Watch: J.R. Smith wins $30,000 for military member with half-court shot

Tuesday October 6th, 2015

Cavaliers guard J.R. Smith sent one military member home from Monday night’s Wine & Gold scrimmage $30,000 richer when he sunk a shot from half-court. 

Smith buried the shot with ease (and then busted out his signature celebration, of course). 


​If there’s one guy on the Cavs you want taking that shot, it’s probably the guy who pulls up from way too deep on a regular basis. 

Doug Baldwin went to shake the ref’s hand and got left hanging
