NBA upholds Hield's overturned tip-in late in Kings' win


Although the Kings ended up escaping with a win regardless, fans likely will be surprised by the NBA's Last Two Minute Report on the final seconds of the victory over the Detroit Pistons.

Buddy Hield's tip-in over Josh Jackson was deemed to be a loose ball foul after review, and the L2M confirmed that the officials indeed made the correct call.

"Replay review of the shooting foul called on Jackson (DET) pursuant to a coach's challenge was deemed successful. Hield (SAC) grabs Jackson's shoulder as he attempts to gain leverage to get to the loose ball," the NBA's report wrote on the play, confirming the overturn of call on the floor.

The only incorrect call according to the league was the foul on Josh Jackson just a few seconds later, when the NBA says he "cleanly dislodged" the ball from Nemanja Bjelica.

Bjelica split his free throws, and the Kings eventually held on for a 110-107 win at Little Caesars Arena.

There appeared to be some mutual contact there between Hield and Jackson on the finish in question, but all Kings fans should be concerned with is coming away with the win, snapping a nine-game losing skid.
