The NBA playoffs delivered a dramatic twist during the game between the New York Knicks and Philadelphia 76ers, where the Knicks emerged victorious in a nail-biting finish. The game’s final moments were marred by controversy as the league’s Last 2 Minute Report later revealed that referees overlooked several key fouls committed by the Knicks.

As the clock wound down, the Knicks’ Donte DiVincenzo sealed the win with a decisive 3-pointer following a turnover by the Sixers. The report identified missed fouls involving Knicks players Jalen Brunson and Josh Hart during the pivotal turnover that led to the game-winning shot. Brunson was seen pulling Tyrese Maxey’s jersey, while Hart was noted for causing Maxey to fall by stepping into his space.

Additionally, the report cited other oversight errors, such as a missed defensive three-second violation and a personal foul that went uncalled. These lapses contributed to the Knicks’ 104-101 victory, stirring significant frustration among the 76ers and their fans.

The fallout from the game has been intense, with 76ers coach Nick Nurse visibly upset over the non-calls and an ignored timeout request that he claimed to have made during the game’s critical moments. The series now moves to Philadelphia with the Sixers facing a 2-0 deficit, setting the stage for a highly charged Game 3 as the team looks to rally back against the Knicks and a backdrop of controversy.
