“There was contact. At that time, during the game, we didn't see a foul. The referees failed in that play ”, they explained.

The foul was not called and the game went into overtime to the enormous frustration of the Lakers star.

“That hurt SO MUCH!!! I don't get it," LeBron tweeted.

In statements to the media after the game, the figure of the Lakers, who signed a great game (41 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists), was stunned and totally confused by what happened.

“I attack the paint as much as any player in this league who takes XNUMX+ free throws a night. I just do not get it. I don't get it,” he pointed out.

LeBron also recalled that they have recently suffered other refereeing errors in the last moments, such as a foul that the referees did not call Troy Brown Jr. in the game a couple of weeks ago that ended with the victory of the Dallas Mavericks in overtime.

"It is unacceptable. And I assure you that nothing will happen to the referees. They ripped us off today, honestly," said Anthony Davis.
