Referees miss foul of Brandon Ingram by Rudy Gobert at end of Pelicans game

Rudy Gobert foul Brandon Ingram

The referees missed a foul committed by Rudy Gobert on Brandon Ingram at the end of Monday night’s Utah Jazz-New Orleans Pelicans game that left the Pelicans frustrated.

Ingram drove to the basket and went for a layup with his team down 128-126 with under two seconds left. He was smacked on the forearm by Gobert, but no foul was called. He missed the shot and the game ended.

Pelicans players were frustrated with the no-call. Lonzo Ball said it was a foul and Ingram should have been given free throws.

They were also upset that coach Alvin Gentry and Ball’s efforts to call a timeout were ignored.

NBA referee Kane Fitzgerald answered questions for a pool reporter after the game. His explanation was Gobert played “legal defense.”

That was a missed call, and it stinks for the Pelicans.
