LeBron’s block on Oladipo – Was it a goaltend? Watch the play and be the judge

With 10.7s left on the clock and scores tied at 95-95 in the game five of the series between Cleveland Cavaliers and Indiana Pacers LeBron James made a ‘questionable’ or ‘brave move’ to block a shot by Victor Oladipo.

Victor Oladipo who led both teams in rebounds with 12 could have won the game with the shot had it gone in but was blocked by LeBron Jame.

“I got a step on him (LeBron James), felt like I even got grabbed on the way to the rim, tried to shoot a layup, it hit the backboard, then he blocked it.

“There’s replays … I guess it’s a tough plays at the time for ’em, but it was a goaltend. I mean, it’s hard to even speak on it. It just sucks, honestly. It really sucks,” said Oladipo.

NBA Rule on goaltending states that: “Player shall not during a field goal attempt, touch a ball after it touches backboard below ring and while ball is on its upward flight.”

LeBron James on Victor Oladipo shot at end: “I definitely thought it was a goaltend.” (Laughter from media, LeBron smiles). “Of course I didn’t think it was a goaltend.”
