Sure looks like it according to Henry Abbott's interview with a professional NBA gambler .
In a game played against the Orlando Magic on March 6, 2006, the line opened for the Jazz at -6. With 5 seconds to go in the game, the Jazz are leading by 4, 89-85. The Magic take a timeout to set up a play. DeShawn Stevenson's three is blocked out of bounds with 2.5 left.
And then suddenly both Stevenson and Jameer Nelson are given Ts by Donaghy . That gave the Jazz two free throws. It didn't affect the outcome of the winner of the game, but it put Memo at the line for two that would have pushed the margin of victory to 6. Kind of convenient for him, isn't it? The line at the time though was 5. So either he just barely missed out on the Jazz covering or he got a push.
"We gave ourselves more than a chance, and I was disappointed that the game wasn't decided by the players, that it was decided by the officials"
And with Donaghy's new allegations concerning the 2002 Lakers/Kings series and other games, is there anyone that has any confidence in the league any more?
