The Last Two Minute Report says LeBron should have been called for a travel.

NBA: Playoffs-Cleveland Cavaliers at Indiana Pacers Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

According to the NBA’s Last Two Minute Report released Monday, the three-pointer LeBron James hit late in Game 4 to put the Cleveland Cavaliers up over the Indiana Pacers should not have counted.

Per the report, James moves his pivot foot before dribbling and hitting a three with 1:04 to go in the fourth quarter of Game 4. The report also said that Pacers forward Paul George took a potential game-tying three with 4.6 seconds to play that shouldn’t have counted because George also moved his pivot foot before dribbling.

The Cavs won Game 4 106-102 and completed their sweep of the Pacers. The NBA does not change the result of games based on the Last Two Minute Report.
