The Cavaliers and Warriors game on Christmas Day lived up to the hype, as the game remained close late in the fourth quarter. There was some controversy, however, when on Cleveland's final possessions, Kevin Durant fouled LeBron James and got away with it on more than one occasion. On the first play, Durant fouled James, leading the Cavs star to lose control of the ball and fall out of bounds. The second instance even drew criticism from the ABC announcers as James was fouled once on his initial drive, and then again at the rim. UPDATE: The NBA confirmed Tuesday evening that Durant did indeed foul James three times in the closing minutes of the game in its last two minute report. The outcome won't be any different, but the confirmation will give fans something to discuss in the following days. It also adds just a little more intrigue to the Cavs and Warriors matchups moving forward.
