Video: Manu Ginobili’s monster fourth quarter for Spurs

May 28, 2012, 10:25 AM EDT

When the game was on the line, Oklahoma City just did not have an answer for the herky-jerky style of Manu Ginobili. He had 11 of the Spurs 39 points in the fourth quarter as the Spurs found a system that worked — going small — and came from behind to win Game 1.

Ginobili is just good at everything. He can find his way to the rim (and finishes well), he can step back and hit a midrange shot, he can knock down a three — you can’t take away everything. But the Thunder couldn’t stop anything late and now they are in an 0-1 hole.

Thanks to NBA.com for the video.

      People have been accusing Manu of getting away w extra steps for years. Heck, I’ve seen some of his plays and thought, ‘How is that not a travel?’ the I look up the video and lo and behold it isn’t.

      He has unique and deceptive foot work combined with a lot of fakes and body twitches, that’s a big part of what makes him so effective. I’m not saying he’s never traveled but please show us the play(s) instead of just saying, “Whatever, he traveled all game and the refs didn’t call it.”

      Sounds like sour grapes to me.
