There were two incorrect calls in the final two minutes of the Hawks’ 99-94 victory over the Pelicans Thursday, according to the NBA. Both errors benefited the Hawks.
The league issued its Last Two Minutes report on Friday and found two errors.
Dennis Schroder should have been called for a foul against Buddy Hield as he drove to the basket with 1:26 remaining. The score was tied 88-88 at the point. Schroder would hit a 3-pointer 13 seconds later to give the Hawks the lead for good.
In addition, Paul Millsap stepped out of bounds with 20 seconds remaining, an infraction discovered on video review. The Hawks led 95-90 at the time.
The NBA issues a report reviewing the last two minutes of all games, and overtimes, that are within five points at the mark.
