No way refs rig the game.
Easier said than done. And I am 100% sure NBA wish they could do that.
The better team will always win.

Donaghy got some eyes opened, still there is no proof of NBA fixing so far. It will take as thesuspence281

The NBA had been trying to clear their image with the instant replay rule in 2010 after the Donaghy incident happened....They are even talking about NBA considering instant replay for late-game charge calls LINK
All those speculations of NBA rigging will never end.
