This is what the Spurs do. They get wide open shots to win games while defenses look confused as to how it all happened.
This time is was Manu Giboli who ended up doing the deed, opening up on the back side of the defense as the Warriors scrambled around trying to find someone to guard. Warriors’ rookie guard Kent Bazemore actually did as good a job as possible in helping in the paint and then recovering back to Ginobili, but he was just a hair late.
And that split second was all Ginobili needed to knock down the shot and knock out the Warriors in the process.
This series is only one game old, but if we could get six more just like it I don’t think anyone would complain.
