Pool Report on LeBron James’ Two-Point Field Goal in Final Seconds of Fourth Quarter in Tonight’s Los Angeles Lakers at Minnesota Timberwolves Game

The Pool Report interview was conducted by Jace Frederick (Pioneer Press) with Crew Chief Tony Brothers following tonight’s Lakers at Timberwolves game.     

QUESTION:  Why was the LeBron James shot with 2.3 seconds to play ruled a two-pointer instead of a three-pointer after video review?

BROTHERS: The play was ruled a two-point field goal on the floor during live play. After video review, there wasn’t clear and conclusive evidence to overturn it from a two to a three, and that’s why it stood as a two-point field goal.
