NEW YORK (AP) -- The NBA has acknowledged a pair of costly incorrect calls in the last seconds of recent games.

In one, officials say a charging foul called against Dallas guard O.J. Mayo on Tuesday should've been a block on Portland's Ronnie Price, who did not get his body directly in Mayo's path prior to him starting his upward shooting motion.

Mayo should've been given two free throws with 1.5 seconds left and the score tied. Instead, Portland got the ball and LaMarcus Aldridge made the winning shot.
