The Los Angeles Lakers survived the Dallas Mavericks thanks to a game-winning three-pointer by Austin Reaves at the end of overtime. However, the game could have easily gone the other way if not for incorrect calls by the referees.
As reported by Dave McMenamin, the NBA released the last two minute report in which it is admitted that there were five incorrect calls by the official, four of them in favor of the Lakers.
Even the final shot by Reaves came after an incorrect non-call of travelling on Russell Westbrook who passed the ball to the rookie who then nailed the game-winner.
The other mistakes by the referees came in final seconds of the fourth quarter with Los Angeles being down by 3 points. According to the report, the officials missed a foul call on Westbrook which would have resulted in Jalen Brunson taking two free-throws and a travelling call on LeBron James before he attempted a three-pointer.
