NBA: Refs Missed Late Goaltending Call on LeBron



LeBron James’ big block of a shot by Indiana Pacers star Victor Oladipo at the end of Game 5 should have resulted in a goaltending call, the NBA acknowledged Thursday. The NBA noted in its Last Two Minute Report that referees missed the call when James blocked Oladipo’s shot after the ball made contact with the backboard.

The play was not reviewed, and James went on to hit a buzzer-beating 3 that gave the Cleveland Cavaliers a 98-95 victory and a 3-2 series lead.
