The referees admitted that a shooting foul called on the Los Angeles Lakers’ final defensive possession in regulation Thursday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder should not have been called.

The call ultimately didn’t matter, with the Lakers going on to win in overtime 138-128.

With three seconds remaining in regulation and the Lakers up 122-119, Ball was called for a shooting foul on Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook, who then sank three free throws to tie the game.

LeBron decided to comment. 

NBA referee Tom Washington spoke with a pool reporter regarding the call. 

The official admitted the decision was incorrect but could not be reviewed.


Can’t wait to see what happens when Refs take to twitter during the games.
