J.R. Smith hits halfcourt shot, wins $30K prize for military family

Monday night fans filled the Q in downtown Cleveland to watch an intrasquad scrimmage amongst the defending and heavily favored to repeat Eastern Conference champion Cavaliers.

But before the scrimmage got started, J.R. Smith was selected to take a half-court shot — hit it and a military family won a $30,000 prize. Smith was money.

I’m surprised the Cavs didn’t have to send out someone to contest the shot to get him to hit it.
