Uncalled Foul Places the Lakers 1 Win Away from the Western Conference Finals

Defending champion San Antonio Spurs trails the ongoing NBA Western Finals 3-1 after the Lakers won the game 93-91 Tuesday.  It was a controversial win for the Lakers when Brent Barry missed 3-point shot with 2 seconds left on the clock.  After the receiving the inbound, Derek Fisher went for a foul making Barry miss badly.  However, the foul was never called which ended the game in favor of the Lakers.

The NBA admitted that  foul should have been called subsequent to reviewing the instant replay.  It would have tied up the series for the Spurs had the shot gone in or it would have given them a chance to even the count on the foul line.  Here’s a video of the final play.  What do you think?
