Default Tim Donaghy match fixing scandals game 3 SUNS vs SPURS

Hey guys, thought I'd like to bring this up because to my knowledge, we got screwed in GAME 3....because TIM was making so many bad calls against the SUNS!!!

A prime example is Stoudemire playing time in that game....ONLY 21 minutes of action. The first 2 fouls in the first quarter and the next 2 fouls in the first 2 mins of the 3rd quarter???

Man, this guy cost us the series and a great shot at the title......

What do you guys think?

nah we shouldn't complain now... lets wait till things are settled then we make accusations... we don't want the Spurs who paid Donaghy money and Eva Longoria to come complaining to us...

It does make you suspicious, that is for sure. Having said that there is still no concrete evidence (at least their is not any made open to the public yet) as to what games were called differently to affect the point spread. This whole scandal just makes me very sick. I have always enjoyed watching NBA basketball, this just puts two black eyes on the NBA.

Ok I know me being a spurs fan makes me biased. But looking over the stats in the game, nothing seems too obvious in this game. Maybe one or two calls, that I have seen plenty of before. I mean the Amare in early foul trouble, he had his second foul with 4:41 left in the first, and yes both called by Donaghy. But he never called another foul at all on Amare.

Then Dunca had his second foul 2 min and 47 seconds into the second quarter, so Duncan was also in foul trouble pretty early.

Being a Spurs fan, I am also a fan of sports so I have looked over this game and I just can not see a winner being fixed. Also in the first half San Antonio was down quite a bit and yet the foul calls at the end of the half was 11 on each team, I think I would have been way more lopsided that this if they were trying to help them catch up.

Just my opinion.

If We Won Game 3 We Could Afford To Lose Game 6... And Game 7 Would Be At Home... And We Would Have Had A Much Better Chance To Win... Im Not Saying We Would Have Definetly Won The Spurs But I Like Our Chances... And Utah And Cleveland Shouldn't Be A Problem If We Get Past The Spurs...

Must you come in here, into our forum and tell us we're losers when it really does not concern you at all. If we wanted your opinion we would have posted this in the general forum...

Unhappy Re: Tim Donaghy match fixing scandals game 3 SUNS vs SPURS

Yeah, I had a gut feeling something was wrong! Donaghy should've have been smarter though by taking out Nash first. But yeah man, I agree...Donaghy might've rigged that game!
