On Tuesday night, the NBA confirmed that the Sixers’ frustrations were justified . However it is too little too late. Now, Philadelphia heads into Game 3 winless.

Following the NBA’s controversial Last 2-Minute report regarding the Knicks-76ers Game 2 matchup, NBA legend Shaquille O’Neal took to Instagram to express his frustration with the report’s findings.

“This is why people think the NBA game is rigged,” Shaq said. “Last night, Tyrese Maxey tried to take the ball out of bounds, Jalen pulled his jersey out, the ref is there and doesn’t call it. But wait… wait! The next day, in the NBA Last 2-Minute report, yes, he fouled out! The referee didn’t call it. My question is: You admit it now, but what the hell does this mean for Philadelphia? Delete the Last 2 Minutes report. You are a referee. Be careful!”
