JR Smiths' "Cavs in 7" tweet was the product of a Twitter hack following the Cleveland Cavaliers' disappointing loss to the Golden State Warriors Wednesday night, giving the Warriors a 3-0 NBA Finals lead with a potential closeout game scheduled for Friday night.

Smith – like the rest of the Cavs – is by no means giving up despite being one game away from losing the NBA championship, but the shooting guard knows better than to tweet out such a cocky statement like "Cavs in 7."

Smith calmed down the noise on social media following the tweet just after Wednesday's game in Cleveland.


"I didn't put it out. Somebody hacked my account," Smith told theScore. "But I like the way he's thinking. Sounds good to me."

"You've got to believe (you can win) in any game, not just in Game 4. We believed that Game 1, going into it, Game 2, Game 3. You've got to believe that no matter who you're playing, or what game it is," Smith said.

Following his postgame interview, Smith told the media about how he first found out about the tweet.

"I got out of the shower and my phone was buzzing," he said, according to Cleveland.com. "I did not tweet that. I'm smarter than that."

"I would be much smarter than that to tweet that at literally 12:04, right after the game," Smith added.

With the Cavs now down 3-0 in the series, history much like last year is totally against them. In fact, the last time an NBA team came back to win a series after trailing 3-0 in the playoffs was in 2003 when the Portland Trail Blazers forced a Game 7 before ultimately losing to the Dallas Mavericks.
