The Cavs shooting guard had to cough up $100 to head coach Ty Lue for losing a side bet. Smith and a few of his teammates had agreed to pay the money to Lue if anyone jumped at Raptors shooting guard DeMar DeRozan's pump fake.

Smith did a great job of locking down DeRozan in the series, but in the final game he fell for one of his trademark pump fakes. It doesn't take much for DeRozan to get a defender in the air, and he is an exceptional shooter from mid-range.

"I knew it as soon as I did it," Smith told cleveland.com.
