Do you really believe the game was rigged?
Teams get favorable calls along with bad/cheap fouls against them everyday. It goes both ways for both teams.
Just to play along, say the game was rigged. Dwight gets 22 foul shots, and was actually hitting them at a good clip early in that game. For the times that dwight went to the line, on most of those possessions, I guarantee you that golden state would rather have him at the line then actually getting a shot up with no foul.
Other than Kobe, the bulk of those fouls came in the post with dwight and gasol. They were shooting at a high clip so in many instances, golden state is forced to foul.
And in the end, they have to make shots. The lakers shot 52% overall and 48% from behind the arc in that game....can't rig that. Not in denial and not a blind laker fan, just calling it as I see it.
