Reporter Kim Dong-chan = Both the National Basketball Association (NBA) Secretariat and the Referees Association admitted that they were mistaken about ‘King’ LeBron James (LA Lakers).
The NBA Referees Association admitted on the 30th (Korean time) through its official social media account that “umpires also make mistakes,” and “we made such a mistake yesterday, and it is very painful.”
The misjudgment recognized by the NBA Referees Association was a situation that occurred in a game between the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics held in Boston, Massachusetts the previous day.
Just before the end of the fourth quarter, Boston’s Jayson Tatum hit James in the arm as James broke through the net, but no foul was called.
The game was tied 105-105 at the time, so the game went into overtime, which Boston eventually won 125-121.
If the foul against James had been acknowledged, James would have gotten two free throws and the Los Angeles Lakers would have likely won without overtime.
James jumped up and expressed regret when the foul was not called, but the decision was not overturned.
In the ‘2 minute report’ published by the league secretariat, the misjudgment of the match is also confirmed. 메이저놀이터
According to the ‘2 Minute Report’, which discloses whether or not a mistake was made on a major decision made two minutes before the end of the fourth quarter of the game, Tatum’s motion should have declared a foul.
The Los Angeles Lakers, who became 23-27 with the defeat on the day, are in a hurry with one win, two games away from Utah Jazz (26-26), who are in 10th place, who can go to the play-in tournament.
