Tirate un pase, Manu
Sheer perfection there. Ginobili bullet pass underneath to spoon feed Green for the layup. That's 19 for Green, Spurs up 94-81.
Manu alley-oop layup to Baynes - Spurs by 31
Manu in for Parker. It will be a Manu-Belinelli backcourt.
Well, if this ends up being a double-digit comfortable lead, have to wonder who might backup Parker? Manu? Marco? Green? Kyle?
If this game gets out of hand (Spurs up 12 now), Pop's not going to want to overplay Parker or Manu. Wanna see what happens at PG.
Marco scored on his first offensive possession. Manu missed a layup, Beli cleaned the miss. SA 22-18
Great thing about the Manu bucket is the weak side movement by Kawhi to bring LeBron a step away once Duncan had the ball.
Spurs' usual closing lineup of Parker, Manu, Kawhi, Duncan & Diaw is outscoring teams by 21.4 points per 100 possessions in 45 mins so far.
Great lines for Duncan, Diaw. The grandmaster: 19/10/3/2/2. Bobo: 19/6/7/3/1. Parker, Ginobili combine to go 9 for 10 at line down stretch.
Cavs needn't be overly concerned. Still very early in program. Gave Duncan (19 pts, 10 reb), Parker, Ginobili, and Spurs a test. It'll come.
LeBron was ready to make the big play there, and that’s what he should have been doing there. Just lost it when Duncan/Manu “stopped ball."
Que final tuvimos! Manu erró uno de dos libres pero Lebron se acordó que enfrentaba a los Spurs y perdió la ultima bola, gran triunfo en CLE
Steal by Manu!!! Oh Manu isn't wearing LeBrons na pala?
Sloppy ending here in CLE: After Manu misses the free throw, LeBron loses the ball at center court. SAS wins 92-90. Cavs are now 5-5.
Ginobili misses 2nd free throw, LeBron loses ball, Spurs win 92-90. Varejao leads w/ 23. Duncan & Diaw 19 apiece. LeBron 15/6/9. Cavs 5-5.
Wow. Ginobili misses FT. Cavs down 2. LeBron dribbling up court. No timeouts...And....loses the ball.
Sneaky Manu sealing to a wide open middle without any help from Kevin Love. Harris’s fault though … Love had to stay on Diaw.
Pop, Duncan really wanted call on Ginobili getting shoved on layup. Spurs 91, Cavs 88. :17.7 sec left.
Tim to Manu backdoor for the easy two points. Just like the good ole days.
Great play. High-low from Duncan to Ginobili under the rim, lays it up for 3-point lead, 17.7 seconds left.
Spurs winning this game with Parker, Ginobili shooting 4 for 11, 4 points apiece.
We know that Manu Ginobili intentionally fouled LeBron James at half court to stop a fast break. So why not make that a clear-path foul?
Love how sometimes Ginobili's passes are fastballs and then sometimes he throws offspeed stuff.
Spurs getting zip from their bench tonight. BAYNES with 4, Joseph with 2, and that's it. Ginobili scoreless in 12 minutes.
All the Bad Manu on that posesssion.
Pop, like Manu, says Spurs missing Splitter more on offense than defense. Splitter's pick-and-rolling creates spacing and people movement.
Interesting that Ginobili has said multiple times that Spurs might miss Splitter more on offense, rolling to basket and setting screens.
