Admittedly, these reports don’t necessarily lead to any tangible changes, as there’s nothing the league can do once the game concludes.

Instead, they provide fans with an opportunity to dwell in a pool of “what-ifs” and assign blame to officials for the final score, even if the call ultimately didn’t impact the outcome.

In the case of the Suns, the missed call occurred with less than 1:30 left, with them trailing by just two points.

Desperately needing a stop, the Suns allowed the Lakers to grab consecutive offensive rebounds, paving the way for Cam Reddish to sink a dagger three in the corner.

However, overlooked in this sequence of rebounds was the fact that Anthony Davis was stationed inside the lane, warranting a three-second call that should have resulted in a turnover.
