In a nail-biting clash between the Indiana Pacers and the Boston Celtics, controversy marred the final moments as referees made a game-altering decision.

With the score tied at 131 and 3.2 seconds remaining, Jaylen Brown’s potential game-winning shot was contested by Buddy Hield, resulting in a foul call that stirred debate.

Following a review, referees reversed their decision, awarding the ball to the Pacers. LeBron James, echoing Brown’s sentiments, took to social media expressing frustration at the referees’ controversial call.

The Lakers’ superstar, recalling his recent encounter with referee decisions, tweeted, “See what I’m saying! 🤦🏾‍♂️. JB clearly got hit in the back of the head. They reviewed the play, just to reverse it and say he didn’t. MAN WHAT!! Good ass game to have an ending like that. And yall see why I be going 🦍 💩 out there when it happens.”

LeBron’s discontent highlights the increasing scrutiny on referees’ decisions that can significantly impact the outcome of closely contested NBA games.
