New York, NY - The NBA admitted Wednesday that game officials made a mistake on a last-second foul call from the previous night in Utah's 140-139 home overtime win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.

"On the final play of last night's Oklahoma City-Utah game, the officials missed a foul committed by the Jazz's C.J. Miles on the Thunder's Kevin Durant during a three-point shot attempt," said Joel Litvin, NBA president of league and basketball operations.

Deron Williams made the game-winning jumper with 1.1 seconds left in overtime for Utah, but the Thunder had a chance to pull out the victory at the end. Durant's long three-pointer missed, but his hand was clearly hit by Miles as the buzzer sounded. Durant turned toward the game officials in disbelief that no foul was called.

The loss left the Thunder tied with San Antonio for sixth place in the Western Conference. Both Oklahoma City and San Antonio were in action Wednesday night.
