Posted January 30, 2013 on AP on Fox
The NBA has acknowledged a pair of costly incorrect calls from the final seconds of recent games. The league says video replay showed that Denver's Andre Iguodala reached in and fouled Indiana's Paul George with the score tied at 101 and 2.2 seconds left Sunday. Iguodala was credited with a steal and the Nuggets won the game. The league also says a charging foul called against Dallas guard O.J. Mayo on Tuesday should have been a block on Portland's Ronnie Price, who did not get his body directly in Mayo's path prior to him starting his upward shooting motion. Mayo should have been given two free throws with 1.5 seconds remaining and the game tied at 104. Instead, Portland got possession and LaMarcus Aldridge made the winning shot.
