The NBA ruled Thursday that there was no illegal screen set by Draymond Green on Stephen Curry's game-sealing 3-pointer late in the fourth quarter against the Miami Heat on Wednesday night.

After being blocked by the Heat's Hassan Whiteside, the Golden State Warriors' Green gave the rebound to Curry and set what looked like a moving, illegal screen on Luol Deng.

In Thursday's Last Two Minute Report, the league supported the non-call, claiming that Green gave Deng room to avoid contact - even if he looked like an offensive tackle protecting his quarterback.

Curry's 3-pointer put the Warriors up for good in the 118-112 win.
