The NBA’s Last Two-Minute Report for Sunday’s Game 4 between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Indiana Pacers indicated LeBron James should have been whistled for a traveling violation before a three-point attempt that put his team up by one with 1:08 left in the fourth quarter.
James dragged his pivot foot before initiating the dribble off the triple-threat position, but the call was not made, resulting in the ensuing dagger trifecta to seal a sweep of the series.

The Pacers also got a break, since Paul George should have been whistled for a travel as well upon retrieving an errant pass, in a potential game-tying three-point attempt in the final seconds of the game that only managed to hit the backboard.

In a war of travels, the King reigned supreme, taking and making a contested three over the outstretched arm of 6-foot-11 Myles Turner and completing the sweep of the first-round series on the road.
