In the fourth quarter of Sunday's matchup between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Orlando Magic, LeBron James tried to save a loose ball from going out of bounds.

At first glance, it seemed LeBron simply couldn't corral the ball and possession would go back to the Magic.

However, an enraged James pleaded his case that a fan had knocked it away. After reviewing the play, officials called interference on the fan and awarded the ball to Cleveland.

The embarrassed fan appeared to apologize to James for getting in his way.

The Cavs ultimately won 123-108.
