Nba Admits Missed Calls Hurt Sixers In Game 5


The Philadelphia 76ers were always fighting long odds in trying to come back from a 3-0 deficit in the Eastern Conference semifinals series against the Boston Celtics.

The NBA admitted Thursday night that officials in Game 5 didn’t do the Sixers any favors by missing two calls against the Celtics late in the 114-112 series-clinching loss the previous night.

In the league’s Last Two Minutes Report, the NBA acknowledged referees missed an Aron Baynes foul on a potential game-tying layup by Joel Embiid with 14 seconds left. Baynes made “contact to Embiid’s arm that affects his shot attempt near the rim” the report said.
