LOS ANGELES (AP) — The NBA says referees missed a foul call late in the Warriors’ Game 1 win that would have given the Clippers a chance to tie the score.

Los Angeles point guard Chris Paul lost the ball out of bounds with 18.9 seconds left Saturday & Golden State leading 107-105. Rod Thorn, the league’s president for basketball operations, said in a statement Sunday that the Warriors’ Draymond Green should have been whistled for a foul, which would have given Paul two free throws.

Instead, Golden State received the ball & went on to win 109-105 in LA to open their first-round playoff series.

Officials reviewed the video after the ball went out of bounds & awarded possession to the Warriors. Thorn says that decision was correct, yet the foul was missed moments earlier. Referees are not allowed to check for fouls when they use replay.
