LeBron James attempting to draw a charge on Kevin Durant

What would Game 1 of the NBA Finals be without a controversial call near the end? We had one tonight.

With the Cavs up 2 and less than a minute remaining, Kevin Durant was called for a charge on a drive to the basket. LeBron James slid in to take the charge.

Or so he thought. After review, the call was chanegd to a block.

That type of call only became reviewable recently. LeBron protested but it didn't matter.

Durant made both free throws to tie the score at 104.

Here's the play that caused the controversy.

What do you think? It looks like he was moving but that is a tough call to change on the best player in the game.
