With under 50 seconds left, DeMarcus Cousins committed a shooting foul but the refs didn't let Gasol go to the free throw line
The NBA says Marc Gasol should have been given two free throws when Golden State Warriors player DeMarcus Cousins committed a shooting foul with 49 seconds left in the final quarter of Game 5 Monday.
As Gasol drives the ball into a layup, Cousins makes contact with Gasol and causes the Raptor to miss his shot and tumble to the floor. The Last Two-Minute Report, routinely put out by the NBA every game, concedes the foul was an incorrect non-call.

In a nail-biting moment, the Raptors were down 103-106 with under a minute left. In the end, Toronto put up two more points and finished with a one-point loss that prevented them from winning the NBA Championship at home in a crucial Game 5.
With the series now 3-2, the Raptors are looking for a historic win in Game 6 in Oakland Thursday.
Some Toronto fans were understandably upset. Many felt the referees were missing important calls during Monday’s game.
