NBA admits refs missed Kevin Durant's late fouls on LeBron James  

Kevin Durant is not as innocent as he insisted he was in Golden State Warriors' NBA win over Cleveland Cavaliers.

The NBA on Tuesday admitted that referees missed three late fouls by Warriors forward Durant and one by Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James during Golden State's 99-92 on Christmas Day.

According to the league's "Last Two Minute Report" Durant fouled James three times in the final 120 seconds of the game, including twice on a drive by James with the Warriors leading 95-92 and less than 30 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter

After the game, James suggested Durant had fouled him twice on the late play despite officials reviewing the incident and making no call.

"He fouled me twice," James said. "But whatever. What are you going to do about it?"

Durant asserted he had done nothing wrong.

"He's too big," Durant said. "He's too big, too fast for that. He's too big. That ain't no foul. It felt clean."

The "Last Two Minute Report" added that James should have been called for a foul on Warriors forward Draymond Green with 33 seconds left in the fourth quarter, citing clamping of Green's arm and jersey that affected his ability to rebound.
