The pressure of being down 2 points and a tied score is different.

I thought it was a makeup call for the blown out of bounds play seconds earlier...

Assuming I used the shot finder on basketball-reference correctly, I have Lebron at 65% on FGs to take the lead in the final minute of the 4th or overtime in the playoffs for his career (13/20). And, small sample size, but 3/3 from 3 in those situations (including that most recent shot). Given his success in those situations, I'm skeptical it would have made a difference.

Nope. Down 2 and tied game are totally different animals.
Tied game and you shoot last...provides you with an overtime.
Down 2 and a miss ... a likely goodbye.

TWO DIFFERENT THINGS.

It isn't getting media attention, but the league also ruled that the out of bounds play was called wrong. The Pacers should not have had the ball.

Surprised the refs didn’t review both plays. Either way hats off for the amazing game winner if both missed calls negate each other (though goaltend is an automatic 2 points).

You can’t review a call that was never made.

In favor of some players and teams more often than others it would seem. Like when random player A gets called for a travel, but Superstar players X and Y are allowed to take three and four steps on a regular basis.

Pretty crazy how much this may have affected the ECF.

Yes, LBJ still made that crazy 3 point game winner, but who's to say they go more conservatively if they're down by 2 (as opposed to tied)?
