Euroleague acknowledged that there was a foul, however, it was prior to Wilbekin initiating the three-point attempt and there shouldn’t have been any free throws awarded.
In the fourth quarter, with 27.9 seconds left on the game clock, Scottie Wilbekin of Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv caught a live ball on the playing court. He dribbled towards the basket and, with 25.0 seconds left on the game clock, Kostas Papanikolaou of Olympiacos Piraeus made illegal contact with Wilbekin. The contact occurred prior to Wilbekin initiating the act of shooting for a three-point field goal attempt. The defensive foul call on Papanikolaou was correct, however, it should have been called a foul on the floor resulting in possession for Maccabi FOX Tel Aviv on the sideline. Three free throws should not have been awarded to Wilbekin.
