LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers downed the New York Knicks after the game went into overtime. The King put a triple-double performance last night to put a 2-game losing streak to a stop. Despite tonight’s win, the incident at the Boston Celtics is still lingering on his mind. He didn’t shy away from the fact of what happened last time at TD Garden.
LeBron was left furious at NBA official Eric Lewis after the no-call right at the end of the Celtics-Lakers game. It was followed by an emphatic reaction from LeBron after, he didn’t receive a call after getting fouled by Jayson Tatum. We could see in many replays that it indeed was a foul on LeBron James, that point he was trying to prove to Eric Lewis.

However, during the Pool report, that took place after the game. It eventually proved that LeBron was right. Official Eric Lewis addressed the issue and admitted that the crew got the decision wrong. “There was contact. At the time, during the game, we did not see a foul. The crew missed the play.” Said Eric in the report.
The NBA has already determined in its postgame review that the officials got the call wrong on the Lakers’ last possession of the 4th Q and a Jayson Tatum should have been called for a shooting foul on LeBron James, league sources told ESPN.
