The NBA’s Last Two Minute Report released on Thursday states that LeBron James‘ big block on Victor Oladipo in the final seconds of Game 5 should have been called goaltending.

The officials did not see that the ball hit the backboard before James made contact with it, which is an automatic goaltend.

As ESPN‘s Rachel Nichols points out, the report also notes other significant mistakes in crunch time:

Cleveland went on to win the game on LeBron’s miraculous buzzer-beater three, taking a 3-2 series lead.

Game 6 is Friday night at 8pm ET in Indiana.
