NBA: Brent Barry Was Fouled

A foul should have been called on the Los Angeles Lakers’ Derek Fisher on the final play of the Spurs’ 93-91 loss in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, an NBA official said after a review of the play Wednesday.

With less than two seconds left, Fisher jumped to defend a 3-point shot by Brent Barry, then made contact with Barry on the way down after the Spurs guard pump-faked and twisted to get rid of the ball. Barry’s shot missed its mark, sealing the Lakers’ victory. []
