No one on Minnesota’s side complained about the no call after the game. A call there certainly would’ve bailed Minnesota out. The Wolves last-second play didn’t play out as they had hoped. “We knew they were going to switch everything, so we tried to get a step to the basket,” Timberwolves coach Ryan Saunders said. “We heard them call out a slip early. They ended up switching — they did a nice job of it. And then we just didn’t get a good look.”

The NBA admitting an obvious travel by 76ers center Joel Embiid was not called only added to Borrego’s frustration in comments before Sunday’s road game against the Detroit Pistons. “It’s tough. I had to read that thing last night, and it was like I had to live it all over again,” Borrego said of the NBA’s report, which acknowledged Embiid traveled with 36 seconds left in the fourth quarter before making a 3-pointer that tied the game. The 76ers went on to win in overtime 133-132. “It does nothing” making peace with the error, Borrego said of the NBA’s policy of publicly acknowledging late-game mistakes in close games.

Candice Buckner: #Wizards Coach Scott Brooks revealed that he recently had a conversation with Bradley Beal and offered a glimpse into that heart to heart: “He just has to continue to lead. It’s tough. It’s tough when you don’t have all your buddies competing with you and you’re fighting and you don’t know who’s going to be on the court night in and night out. And he’s handled it pretty good. There are times where he hasn’t but for the most part he’s handled it well. He’s competing and he keeps us relevant when we have a lot of guys that probably wouldn’t have played many minutes going into the season.”
