The NBA says Aron Baynes should have been whistled for a foul on Joel Embiid with 14.6 seconds left in Wednesday night’s closeout Eastern Conference semifinal game between the Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers. Boston led 111-109, and after the game, Embiid — who would have gone to the line if the call had been made — said he felt he was fouled.

The league agreed in its “Last Two Minute Report” published Thursday. The Celtics went on to win 114-112 to take the series 4-1 and advance to play the Cleveland Cavaliers in the East finals.
