Last Two Minute Report Upholds Late Fouls On Jimmy Butler 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Oct 10, 2020 10:23 pm

The NBA's Last Two Minute report upheld two foul calls on Jimmy Butler in the final minute of Game 5 that drew complaints from Frank Vogel.


"I felt two bad calls at the end put Butler to the line, you know, and that's unfortunate in a game of this magnitude. Anthony Davis has a perfect verticality, should be a play-on. And the time before that, Markieff Morris has his hands on the ball -- that should be a play-on. They were given four free throws and made it an uphill battle for us. Very disappointed in that aspect of the game," said Vogel after Game 5.


Both fouls were correctly called, according to the L2M. Morris' foul on Butler came with 46.7 seconds remaining, with Davis' foul coming with 16.8 seconds in the game.


The report explained that Davis "jumps from point A to point B and initiates body contact with Butler during his driving shot attempt."


The Heat did get the benefit of two calls, according to the L2M. Butler should have been called for a foul on LeBron James with 1:01 left in the fourth quarter. That possession ended up with a lay-in from James.


Andre Iguodala should also have been called for a defensive three-second violation with 28 seconds left in the game. Davis ended that possession with a lay-up that put the Lakers up 108-107.

What about LeBron's travel violation during the inbound pass on that last play?

That's what I saw. They showed the replay in game. I suppose the coach wasn't watching tv. 8-)
