The most frustrating part for the Lakers was that Christian Wood should have been called for a foul on LeBron James’ game-winning layup attempt at the end of first overtime. The Lakers were also upset about the non-call on Troy Brown Jr. at the end of the fourth quarter, but it was the right call, according to the report.
