Aaron Rose: The L2M report says Pascal Siakam did not foul Alperen Sengun and the refs correctly called the final play last night. Regardless, I think Raptors and Rockets fans are happy with how things turned out
With 17.4 seconds remaining, All-Star Darius Garland was fouled by Philadelphia center Joel Embiid. According to a review of the play, Embiid reached across Garland and made contact to his left arm -- a play that should’ve resulted in two free throws and could’ve put Cleveland ahead by one. Bickerstaff singled out that egregious missed call in his postgame remarks.
Tom Orsborn: Refs made the correct non-call on Keldon Johnson's layup attempt at the end of Memphis' 112-111 win, according to the NBA's last 2-minute report: "Bane is jumping toward the basket when marginal body contact occurs on Johnson's layup attempt."
James Ham: There is only one mistake in the L2M report from the Kings' overtime win over the Magic. Happened in the 4th quarter and worked out in Kings favor: "Hampton (ORL) makes direct contact with the ball and part of Jones' (SAC) hand that is on the ball during the layup attempt."
Will Guillory: The NBA's L2M Report determined that there wasn't a foul on Jose Alvarado's final shot in last night's loss to the Spurs. It did come back with 2 incorrect non-calls, though -- one on the Pels, one on the Spurs. pic.twitter.com/WMcMde2uAZ

Jason Anderson: Last 2 Minute Report from Sunday's Kings-Suns game shows Bismack Biyombo should have been called for an offensive foul for hooking Justin Holiday's arm on the screen that led to Landry Shamet's go-ahead 3-pointer with 31.1 seconds remaining in OT.
Anthony Chiang: Last 2 Minute report says no-call that led to jump ball late in last night’s Heat-Bucks game was correct ruling. “Antetokounmpo (MIL) and Butler (MIA) arrive at the ball simultaneously during the inbound pass and the body contact that occurs is incidental.”
Ira Winderman: Officiating report also cites errors: -- Uncalled goaltend on Adebayo. -- Uncalled travel on Butler. -- Uncalled foul on Butler. -- Uncalled foul on Tucker. (All four in fourth quarter of game that went double-overtime. Of all five errors cited, all five in Heat favor.)
Marla Ridenour: NBA last 2-minute report said #Cavs @Kevin Love should not have gotten game-winning free throws vs #Hornets. "The replay outcome is incorrect, as Rozier makes contact to Love's arm prior to his shooting motion and a non-shooting foul should have been assessed."
Chris Mannix: NBA L2M report rules a correct no-call on Seth Curry's end of regulation attempt on Monday: "As Curry drifts away from the basket, momentum carries him backwards towards Jackson Jr., who otherwise would avoid making contact with Curry. The marginal contact is caused by Curry."
Kristian Winfield: NBA's Last 2 Minute report says Stephen Curry abnormally jumped to create contact with Kessler Edwards at the 1:44 mark in the 4th quarter. Steve Nash opted not to challenge the foul call. Could have been a game-swinging decision.
Steve Bulpett: Per NBA, every Last Two Minute play of Celtics-Spurs was either a correct call or a correct non-call... So no goaltending by Jock Landale on Jaylen Brown's drive. "Landale's arm grazes the rim while the shot is in the air, and the contact does not vibrate the basket or rim."
Kellan Olson: NBA's L2M for last night had 4 missed calls. -- Bane was fouled at 35 seconds on the scramble for Bridges' putback -- Adams fouled Smith on Anderson's miss -- Anderson's miss was not an airball (shot clock should have reset) -- Start of Morant's game-winning drive was a travel
Ira Winderman: NBA rules that Kyle Lowry's 4-point play late against Clippers actually should have been called an offensive foul, "Lowry (MIA) extends his right leg into Zubac (LAC) as he attempts to draw a foul during his jump shot attempt. This play should be assessed as an offensive foul."
Ira Winderman: NBA officiating report cites three incorrect calls against Heat in final two minutes vs Jazz: Tucker charge should have been Gobert blocking foul: an uncalled Gobert travel: Heat out of bounds actually was Mitchell out of bounds. No incorrect calls in Jazz favor.
James Ham: The NBA's Last Two Minute report has 3 errors in the Kings/Blazers game. Fox got away with a foul on McCollum at the 54 second mark. Nurkic fouled Mitchell on a loose ball foul with 25.5 seconds remaining and McCollum was out of bounds on Haliburton turnover with 13.7 remaining.
John Hollinger: L2M report says Kawhi illegally screened Ingles on final play. I had thought maybe he stopped just in nick of time but apparently not. official.nba.com/l2m/L2MReport.…
Kellan Olson: L2M highlights from last night: -- Nurkic didn't foul Saric on the first set of FTs with 1:04 left -- Bridges traveled on his drive off the inbound he got FTs for with 34 secs left -- Powell fouled Booker before he got the ball with 4 secs left -- CJ went backcourt at the end
Chris Kirschner: The NBA's last 2-minute official report ruled that Russell Westbrook should have been awarded an and-1 on Kevin Huerter's contest. That could have tied the game in the final minute. Also ruled that John Collins was not fouled on the Hawks' final possession.
The NBA admitted that officials missed a crucial foul call in the Utah Jazz loss to the Golden State Warriors on Monday night. With 32 seconds remaining in the game, Clarkson attempted a three-pointer that missed wide to the left with the Jazz leading 116-114. Clarkson and Jazz coach Quin Snyder both appeared to notice the Warriors foul looking to the officials for a whistle that never came.
Jeff McDonald: According to the L2M report, only two missed calls late in Spurs-Heat, both advantaging SA: * A shooting foul on Poeltl against Adebayo with 1:58 left that went uncalled. * An uncalled traveling violation against Dejounte Murray with 1:49 to play.
Kellan Olson: L2M report highlights: - Ayton was fouled on the strip where he hurt his shoulder - Bucks did not have possession when they called timeout with 2.5 left - Ayton fouled DiVincenzo on the Bridges 3 in OT - Connaughton should have got a 3-second call on the last possession of OT

Rick Bonnell: Two reffing errors in last 11 seconds of Hornets-Heat, both of which disadvantaged Hornets. Miami should have been called for a 5-second violation and Ariza should have been called for a foul.
Mike Vorkunov: Last 2 Minute report from Knicks-76ers last night. NBA says — RJ Barrett should've been called for shooting foul on Ben Simmons w/ 45.7 sec left — Julius Randle should've been called for travel with 24.3 sec left — Randle should've been called for offensive foul with 14 sec left
Neil Dalal: Russell Westbrook and Scott Brooks both wanted a foul call on Khris Middleton on this potential game-tying layup. NBA's Last Two Minute Report says it was the correct no call because it was only "marginal" contact. L2M does say Deni Avdija fouled Giannis before he passed back. pic.twitter.com/OZqhW4eOfF

Neil Dalal: NBA says the only incorrect call from Wizards-Clippers was this foul against Nic Batum sending Bradley Beal to the free-throw line. Beal still easily got it to Neto. They say Beal did hit Batum's arm on the 3 and Williams never had possession on possible backcourt violation.
Chris Mannix: Rudy Gobert's foul against Joel Embiid in the final minute of the Jazz loss to the Sixers has been deemed the correct call, per NBA. In the Last 2 Minute Report, ruling says Gobert extended his arm into Embiid's back, affecting his play at the basket.
Kyle Neubeck: Last 2 minute report from Sixers-Jazz admits to six errors: 3 incorrect no calls on Utah (another Gobert foul on Embiid, missed travel on Bogdanovic, missed 3 sec for Gobert) 3 incorrect no calls on Philadelphia (kicked ball by Simmons, Embiid fouling Mitchell, travel by Harris)
Jason Anderson: Per Last 2 Minute Report, officials made the correct call when they whistled De'Aaron Fox for his sixth foul against the Lakers last night, noting: "Fox moves underneath Schroder's lower body during his shooting motion and contact affects his driving shot attempt."
Michael Singer: NBA’s L2M report from Nuggets-Wizards finds zero incorrect calls over the last two minutes. Bradley Beal’s delay of game half-court swat occurred with 2:19 left. Very curious if NBA would’ve weighed in on that.
Rod Boone: Last two-minute report says Gordon Hayward made contact to Devin Booker's wrist, affected his game-tying 3-point attempt with .06 seconds left. Booker should have been awarded free throws. But same thing happened to #Hornets and Terry Rozier a while back so these things even out.
KC Johnson: NBA’s L2M report said call on Coby White’s foul on Ricky Rubio was correctly a shooting foul. Report also said KAT foul on LaVine with 12.3 seconds left in regulation was wrong. KAT fouled out on the play.
KC Johnson: NBA’s L2M said officials block charge on Thad Young while guarding Joel Embiid was correct. So if Billy Donovan would’ve challenged, he would’ve lost.
Harrison Wind: The NBA's L2M Report says Robin Lopez should have been called for an illegal screen on Facu Campazzo on the Wizards' last play of regulation. "Lopez extends into Campazzo's path while setting the screen and does not give him room to avoid the contact." pic.twitter.com/k7MtUmZpqs

Kevin Chouinard: L2M report says Trae Young was not fouled at end of DAL game: “Cauley-Stein (DAL) is entitled to a normal step on a screen from behind, which he takes, and which leads to incidental and legal contact between Cauley-Stein and Young (ATL).”

Those around the team were confident that James signing an extension was likely, considering how much he’s enjoyed playing for the Lakers and living in Los Angeles. The primary complication in James’ decision was that he has been privately adamant that the Lakers still need to improve the current roster and trade for superstar point guard Kyrie Irving, league sources have told The Athletic.
The Lakers have explored runs at Nets point guard Kyrie Irving ($36.9 million expiring contract), but it’s unclear if Brooklyn would want to include Joe Harris’ $19.9 million salary for 2023-24 as well. The Pacers have Buddy Hield, a former client of Lakers executive Rob Pelinka, at $18.6-23.3 million for next season (depending on incentives). Los Angeles has also explored a deal for Pacers center Myles Turner with the expectation that he would extend or re-sign beyond his current $17.5-20 million salary for 2022-23.
Rob Pelinka has been “very active” in attempting to add more shooting and size to the Los Angeles Lakers roster, according to Adrian Wojnarowski on ESPN. “Rob Pelinka has still been very active, even in the dog days of August. He’s been on the phone a lot, he’s still trying to find deals to bring in more shooting, perhaps some size. And so I think those conversations continue all the way into training camp,” said Wojnarowski on NBA Today.
Among the executives with whom I spoke, a Boston deal with Jaylen Brown as the centerpiece appears to be the unofficial front-runner here. In general terms, sources say the Nets are using the fact that the Celtics (and perhaps other teams) have made their second-best player available as a baseline of sorts in negotiations. Translation: If you’re still trying to discuss a Durant deal without putting your second-best talent on the table, then just stop wasting everyone’s time and bow out of this race.
