The Los Angeles Lakers truly had a remarkable escape against the Memphis Grizzlies, with officials missing out on a call at a crucial moment that could have extended the match

The NBA’s last-two-minute report for the Friday match showed that despite Dennis Schroder’s clean steal over Desmond Bane to give the Lakers the crucial two-point lead, the referees weren’t able to blow their whistle against Russell Westbrook’s lane violation.

The penalty occurred when Brandon Clarke finished shooting his second free throw, which eventually missed. Should Westbrook be called, it will hand the Grizzlies’ big man another charity stripe chance to tie the game.

As such, Los Angeles won via a 122-121 tight comeback fight over Memphis. The two teams will meet again on Feb. 28 inside FedEx Forum.
