The NBA confirmed the missed foul call against Klay Thompson in the Warriors’ win
SAN FRANCISCO — The NBA’s final two-minute report confirmed a missed foul on Klay Thompson as the time expired in Golden State Warriors‘ 116-113 win against Sacramento Kings on Monday evening, announcing that Thompson had made contact with Kevin Huerter‘s hand, which affected his jump shot, on a 3-point attempt that could have tied the score.
The Kings trailed by three De’Aaron Fox threw the ball to Huerter with 1.3 seconds left. Huerter attempted a 34-footer over Thompson, who appeared to hit Huerter in the hand during the shot attempt.
If Huerter had made that shot or made three free throws, it could have sent the game into overtime.
“The NBA knows it’s a foul, and basically all they’re going to tell us is they missed the call, but you still lost,” Kings coach Mike Brown said Monday night.
This was confirmed by the Last Two Minute report Stephen Curry traveled with 16.1 seconds left in the game, which also went uncalled.
This is the second time in the past week that missed calls have cost the Kings a game.
After their defeat with 110-107 of Miami Heat on Wednesday, a Last Two Minute report revealed the missed travel invitation Tyler Herro on what led to his game-winning drive with 18.1 seconds left in the game.
“It’s tough being the Sacramento King,” Brown said. “Because Kevin was fouled … I just want, at the end of the game, somebody to step up and make the right call. A guy gets hit on the arm and shoots a 3, that’s a foul. A guy takes six steps, or three, four steps, that is a journey.”
