NBA says referees were right not to call foul on Iguodala’s late strip

Last 2 Minute reports are often used to rip on NBA referees, but the league’s release of the report from Game 2 of the Golden State Warriors-Portland Trail Blazers series indicates that they got a tough call right in the decisive stages.

According to the L2M report, Andre Iguodala’s game-sealing strip of Damian Lillard was not a foul, and the referees were correct in not calling it, stating that the contact on Lillard was “marginal.”

Lillard had pointed out that he felt there was “a lot of contact” on the play, but had refused to blame the referee for not deciding the game with his whistle.

Ultimately, the L2M report doesn’t even back Lillard’s assertion. They saw minimal contact, and there can be no complaints from Portland, though they didn’t really offer any serious ones anyway.
