The Philadelphia 76ers fell to 39-34 on the season Wednesday night after falling 108-107 to the Los Angeles Clippers in Philadelphia.

The game was back and forth throughout, coming down to the wire.

With 5.1 seconds left to go, there was a tie-up, forcing a jump ball at center court. The Sixers won the tip and Kelly Oubre drove the lane looking for a game-winning shot, but it was blocked and time expired.

Both Oubre and Sixers head coach Nick Nurse thought a foul took place, but there was no call.

As both argued with the officials, it appeared that Oubre called each one a *****.

The basket wouldn’t have counted as Oubre didn’t release it in time. But there is fairly strong evidence that he was fouled as you look at the video. Then, after the game, referee Kevin Scott admitted the crew blew the call.

“On the last play on the floor, in real time the crew interpreted that play as the defender jumping vertically.  However, in post-game video review we did observe some slight drift to his left by the defender George, and a foul should have been ruled,” Scott said, via Sixers beat reporter Keith Pompey.

Getting the referees to admit a blown call either after the game or in the NBA’s Last Two Minute Report is almost like adding insult to injury for the losing team. Not only were they wrong, but there’s nothing anyone can do about it.
