NEW YORK (AP) The NBA has acknowledged a pair of costly incorrect calls from the final seconds of recent games.
The league says video replay showed that Denver's Andre Iguodala reached in and fouled Indiana's Paul George with the score tied at 101 and 2.2 seconds left Sunday. Iguodala was credited with a steal and the Nuggets won the game.
The league also says a charging foul called against Dallas guard O.J. Mayo on Tuesday should have been a block on Portland's Ronnie Price, who did not get his body directly in Mayo's path prior to him starting his upward shooting motion. Mayo should have been given two free throws with 1.5 seconds remaining and the game tied at 104. Instead, Portland got possession and LaMarcus Aldridge made the winning shot.
Loudoun South Little League will play Thursday night for a chance to advance to the United States final of the Little League World Series.

Virginia did not allow a hit through the first two games of the tournament but is now on the brink of elimination.

The Patriots offered the Redskins a first-round pick in a trade for disgruntled left tackle Trent Williams but Washington rebuffed the offer, a source with knowledge of the situation told NBC Sports Washington.
Kevin Sheehan of Team 980 reported the same news Thursday morning on his radio show.
That call from New England came a few weeks ago while the Redskins were holding training camp in Richmond, the source explained. The Patriots are no longer pursuing Williams.
Washington has made clear they don’t intend to trade Williams, which makes sense publicly. Still, there have been at least three teams to contact the Redskins about trading for Williams.
It’s believed the Redskins want a first and a second-round pick to move on from Williams, who is refusing to report to the team despite having two years left on his contract.
The reports around Williams’ holdout have been significant, mainly centering around the suggestion that the seven-time Pro Bowler will not return to Washington due to a misdiagnosis from the team’s medical staff last season.
Multiple sources near Williams have been clear that he will not return to the Redskins and will miss regular-season action.
Earlier this week, Washington head coach Jay Gruden said there is no update on the Williams situation and he must prepare his team with the players that have reported.
“It is what it is,” Gruden said.
