Warriors catch break with no foul called on Lance Stephenson shot
The Golden State Warriors defeated the Memphis Grizzlies on Saturday night 100-99, and the got some help from the officials at the end.
Lance Stephenson attempted a shot from the corner that was contested by three Warriors players. It looked like he got fouled on the shot, but nothing was called.
Stephenson should have been sent to the line with a chance to tie the game or give the Grizzlies the lead, but no foul was called.
Thanks to the call, the Warriors were able to win the game and are now two victories away from topping the ’95-’96 Chicago Bulls’ record for best regular season record. The Grizzlies were also impacted by the call; they’re vying for seeding in the playoffs. They’re trying to stay ahead of the Dallas Mavericks for the sixth spot in the Western Conference in order to face the Oklahoma City Thunder rather than the San Antonio Spurs.
