NBA says Stephen Curry was fouled on game-tying three-pointer

Friday April 24th, 2015

The NBA's "Last Two Minute Report" from Game 3 between the Golden State Warriors and New Orleans Pelicans found that Warriors guard Stephen Curry was fouled on his three-pointer that sent the game to overtime.

A foul was not called on Curry's three, which tied things up at 108 with less than three seconds remaining in regulation. Golden State would go on to win the game in overtime, 123-119, to take a 3-0 lead in the series. 

The NBA's officiating report found that Pelicans forward Anthony Davis made contact with Curry prior to his landing, explaining that "a player's shooting motion continues until he returns to the floor." It was officially deemed an "incorrect non-call" in the report.
