Did LeBron James foul Kevin Durant on key late-game shot? [Poll]

June 15, 2012|By Melissa Rohlin

The Oklahoma City Thunder trailed by two points, 98-96, with 12.3 seconds left in Game 2 of the NBA Finals.

Derek Fisher inbounded the ball to Kevin Durant, who was being guarded by LeBron James.  Durant spun baseline then shot a fall-away jumper in the paint. It missed.

Durant thought he was fouled but the referees didn't make the call, which turned what could have been a potentially game-tying free throw opportunity into a win for the Miami Heat.

James caught the rebound and was immediately fouled by Russell Westbrook. James proceeded to make both of his free throws, giving the Heat a 100-96 advantage and tying the series at 1-1.

Did the referees botch the call?
