NBA: Two calls missed in fi­nal mo­ments of Cavs-War­riors

The Washington Times Daily - - SPORTS -

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.
