In a tense ending that felt like the longest two minutes in basketball history, the NBA’s Last 2 Minute (L2M) report identified two missed calls in the Suns’ narrow loss to the Rockets on Friday night, both occurring in the final 30 seconds of the game.

The first missed call involved Kevin Durant, who was whistled for a foul on Alperen Sengun. At that moment, the Suns were behind by a single point. The call allowed Sengun to shoot two free throws, which he successfully made.

The NBA’s L2M report later described Durant’s contact as “marginal.”


Another incorrect call occurred with only 4.6 seconds remaining, when Devin Booker was called for an away-from-play foul. Although the outcome of this particular play did not change, as Fred VanVleet missed the subsequent free throw, it highlighted the critical officiating errors in the game’s final moments.

The NBA declared that Booker established himself in a legal guarding position.


Across the game, a total of 43 fouls were called between the Suns and Rockets, culminating in a 114-110 defeat for Phoenix.
