On Monday afternoon, the NBA released its "Last Two Minute Report" from the Warriors' 109-108 loss to the Cavs on Christmas Day.

And according to the league, the referees made two mistakes that cost the Warriors.

With 1:43 remaining, LeBron James' dunk gave the Cavs a 105-103 lead.

"James (CLE) deliberately hangs on the rim after the dunk," the report states, and LeBron should have been assessed a technical foul.

And with the Warriors trailing by one with 3.1 seconds left, Richard Jefferson got away with fouling Kevin Durant.

"LATR shows Jefferson (CLE) makes foot to foot contact with Durant (GSW) that affects his SQBR," the report says.

Durant would have gone to the line for two shots.

The Cavs were out of timeouts.
