With time running out and the Lakers up by three, Kobe Bryant blocked Ricky Rubio's three-point attempt at the buzzer — or so it seemed.
The Lakers left Minnesota on Wednesday with a 120-117 victory over the Wolves, but Bryant got away with a favorable non-call.
According to the Associated Press, the NBA has told the Timberwolves on Thursday that the foul was missed, and that Rubio should have been given three free-throw attempts.
Bryant had dismissed the notion after the game Wednesday.
"They ain't calling that," said the Lakers' All-Star guard. "I don't think I got him. That's a tough call to make. I just put my hand there. It's not like I went out and smacked him across the arm or anything like that."
