2) Tonight was the first time in Manu Ginobili's career he tallied at least 20 points, 8 assists and 8 rebounds in a single game.

Jeff McDonald

Minutes totals from Spurs' first triple-OT game since 1984: Green 52, Duncan 48, Manu 41, Belinelli 43, Diaw 39.

Jeff McDonald

Ginobili on the final shot, which hit nothing but backboard: "It was a bad shot. I'm disappointed in the decision I made."

Jeff McDonald

Manu said goal on final possession of third OT was "to attack. But I had no legs to get to the rim."

Dan McCarney

Duncan - 48 mins. Green - 52 mins. Ginobili - 41 mins. Diaw - 39 mins. Belinelli - 43 mins. Just no good options there.

Dan McCarney

As we suspected, Ginobili said he was just too worn out to do much else on that last shot. Was supposed to attack rim, but settled for the 3

Paul Garcia

Manu on the Spurs bouncing back after going down early: "We played more aggressively, we moved the ball. We got back in the game."

Paul Garcia

Manu said he wanted to attack on his last shot, but, "I had no legs to get to the rim. I'm disappointed in that shot that I took."

Mico Halili

Pop: Timmy, Manu, uhm what they did to Han Solo in Star Wars, we'll need you to do that k. See you in the playoffs. http://t.co/ZdHFhhLedt

Paul Garcia

Pop on Manu's last shot: "Everybody tries to win the game and it just didn't fall for him."

Roberto Martin

Final @San Antonio Spurs 116-@Memphis Grizzlies 117 (3 OT). @Manu Ginobili 21pts (3/11 t2, 4/9 t3 y 3/7 tl)+8reb+8as en 41m10s. No jugó Parker. #NBA

Michael Lee

This SAS-MEM game should've ended on a better shot than that Ginobili splat...

Jimmy Spencer

Duncan is so good he missed that point-blank layup on purpose to get Danny Green that 3-pointer. Ginobili then tried the same thing.

Royce Young

That shot from Ginobili was basically him saying, "I've had enough of this game."

Dan McCarney

Ginobili with the 3, and nothing but glass. Grizzlies win 117-116.

Roberto Martin

No mejoró @San Antonio Spurs con el ingreso de Manu, Memphis mete mucha presión en la primera línea, le hace consumir tiempo y a lanzar incómodo. #NBA

Paul Garcia

1:58 left in 3OT, Spurs trail Grizzlies 115-113. Duncan 23 points, 16 bords, 5 dimes. Green 22 points, Manu 21 points, 7 assists. Diaw 17

Roberto Martin

Una ofensiva sin @Manu Ginobili en cancha en un suplementario, es casi como ver un ataque de los @New York Knicks. Falta criterio en @San Antonio Spurs. #NBA

Paul Garcia

Dead possession, so Pop brings back Manu and Tiago.

Paul Garcia

Duncan has played 43 minutes, Manu 38, Danny Green 47. Incredible.

Dan McCarney

Ginobili dribbling clock down...

Steve Aschburner

Had that Manu save wound up in Grizz hands. But of course it didn't so: #hustle

Paul Garcia

Sums it up. RT @RichardCOliver: Live by the Manu. Die by the Manu. Live by the Manu.

Dan McCarney

Duncan - 19/14/5; Diaw 17/12/5; Ginobili 21/7/7; Green 22/7/3. Two OTs inflates the stats some, but big efforts there.

Jeff McDonald

I don't know how Manu hustled down that rebound, and the save could have been a disaster. But it's Spurs' ball, up one with 34 seconds to go

Dan McCarney

As we discussed, make or miss, Ginobili's effort rarely wanes.

Dan McCarney

Ginobili flings himself into bench to save defensive rebound, timeout Spurs with 2-point lead, 34 seconds left.

Dan McCarney

There's one way to break a slump: Have Tim Duncan spoon feed you for a layup. Ginobili ties it at 106s.

Paul Garcia

What they've been doing since 2003. Manu and Duncan backdoor play. Tied game at 106.

Paul Garcia

Spurs miss two chances to take the lead as both Diaw and Manu's open looks from three rim out. Gasol gives MEM 106-102 lead

Dan McCarney

Ginobili misfires on 3, now 6 for 18.

Paul Garcia

Splitter draws his 5th foul of the game, Diaw and Manu re-enter for Joseph/Splitter.

Jon Krawczynski

Can totally hear Pop saying before that last play: "Manu you got us into this mess. You get us out of it." No dice

Dan McCarney

50/50 he wins the game anyway. The full Manu experience.

Jeff McDonald

Usually you can at least tell what Manu's thinking when he turns it over. There, I got no clue.

Jeff Wade

Ginobili prone to Ginobili

Dan McCarney

Only Ginobili: Lobs alley oop to Duncan in OT game. (He made it)

Dan McCarney

Ginobili with missed FT No. 11 for Los Spurs.

Dan McCarney

WOW. Gasol banks it in from about 30 feet away with Ginobili in his face.

Dan McCarney

Green to the rescue. Drills corner 3 on perfectly executed play. Inbound to Boris, hits the cutting Ginobili, over to Green in the corner.

Dan McCarney

Ginobili, Duncan not even close on last two shots, Randolph shooting 2 FTs for the lead with 1:21 left.

Tas Melas

Manu Ginobili guarding Nick Calathes -- first bald on bald matchup?

Paul Garcia

Diaw checks back in for Splitter. Marco, Green, Manu, Duncan also on the floor.

Dan McCarney

Ginobili misfires from line and Spurs are just 10-19 in the game.

Paul Garcia

Manu, Diaw, Duncan, Beli, Green coming in after the timeout.

Jeff McDonald

After an iffy start, Ginobili has been pretty brilliant.

Paul Garcia

Manu collects his 4th assist by finding an open Cojo under the rim.

Paul Garcia

Manu with 17 points through 3 quarters, Duncan 13 points and 10 boards, Marcco 10 points.

Paul Garcia

3Q: Spurs 68, Grizzlies 73. After going down 17 in the quarter, the Spurs cut the Memphis lead to 5. SA won 3Q 23-21. Manu 6 points in 3Q.
