    "Adams (OKC) extends his leg into Green's (SAS) path, causing him to trip and fall into Durant (OKC)," the NBA said in the report.  

    THE NBA admitted more incorrect calls in the Spurs-Thunder series , with two against San Antonio at home towards the end of Game Five.

    In its last two minute report on Wednesday (Thursday, Manila time), the NBA said Kawhi Leonard fouled Russell Westbrook, which should have stopped the play with about eight seconds left and given the Thunder two shots from the stripe.

    Instead, Westbrook was allowed to continue for a shot and given a free throw with 6.3 seconds on the clock.

    Westbrook completed the play, giving the Thunder a four-point lead.

    "He fouled him. It was pretty obvious he fouled him, but every call doesn't get called. That's the way the game is,” said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich.

    “I was more concerned about the play before that with Durant's shot. But as I've said, sometimes you get a call. Sometimes not. It happens to everybody. Tough game."

    That was listed on the NBA report, at 54.7 when Danny Green was called for a foul on Kevin Durant but replays showed Steven Adams tripped Green.

    "Adams (OKC) extends his leg into Green's (SAS) path, causing him to trip and fall into Durant (OKC)," the NBA said in the report.
