Vintage: Manu Ginobili

3:11:37 PM | 6/17/2013 | Monday

Dwyane Wade’s a la ’06 effort was matched up well with Manu Ginobili’s epic act during the 2005 Finals.

He struggled on his shooting during the previous playoff games. And he’s on very usual off-the-bench roles. More than that, he’s been a huge disappointment for some of the fans, just 34 percent on his shooting and averaged just 7.5 points prior to the fifth contest.

That went on until Greg Poppovich adjusted something that went into the Argentinean’s favor.

Now, he’s part of the starting five on this game 5, and the result? 24 points and 10 rebounds, on top of his step back jumpers, dangerous slashing moves, and the daredevil look.

Moreover, it was a 10-point win for the Spurs. Another additional big thing, it is a huge step closer to the title for this year’s championship.

Another BIG thing, (sorry for mentioning these words again) Danny Green set a record for the three-point shots made in the championship series. And guess who the previous record-holder was? It was one of the Heat players in the name of Ray Allen, especially when he’d done that during his glorious days with the Boston Celtics. He could almost get the Heat back in the crunch time, not until Green’s 10th attempt went in – and that’s his 6th trey of the night. And take note, it’s only Green’s first Finals appearance
Game 4, it was Wade’s performance that made their Big 3 act together. How about Game 5? It looks like the “old guys” are back.

Now, the question is, will the San Antonio win another trophy in their opponent’s home court? Or will Miami live another day and will push the Spurs to the limit?

Fast forward to Wednesday!
