NBA: Two calls missed in final moments of Cavs-Warriors
NEW YORK | The NBA says two calls were missed in the final moments of Cleveland’s NBA Finals rematch win over Golden State on Sunday, and both aided the Cavaliers in what became their 109-108 victory.
The league said Cleveland star LeBron James should have been assessed a technical foul for deliberately hanging on the rim after his dunk with 1:43 remaining, and that Cavaliers forward Richard Jefferson should have been called for fouling the Warriors’ Kevin Durant on the game’s final play.
Jefferson’s feet appeared to get tangled with Durant’s on that last play. Durant tumbled to the floor, and could only manage a one-handed fling toward the basket as time expired.
