OKC-LAC controversial Game 5

The Thunder overcame a seven-point deficit with 49 seconds to play in Game 5 to take a 3-2 lead over the Clippers in the Western Conference semifinals. The game took a controversial turn when Oklahoma City was awarded a possession with 11.3 seconds remaining in the game on a ball Doc Rivers believed went out of bounds off a Thunder player. On the ensuing possession, Russell Westbrook was fouled by Chris Paul on a 3-point attempt, setting up what would turn out to be the game-winning free throw attempts. Did the officials cost the Clippers the game? How will the rest of the series play out?

  • Did the officials make the right call near the end of the Thunder-Clippers game, when the ball was deemed to go out of bounds off an L.A. player?

  • Doc Rivers said he thinks the officials awarded a late possession to the Thunder near the end of Game 5 as a makeup call for missing a foul on Matt Barnes. Do you agree?
