The San Antonio Spurs were “supposed” to win Game 5 at home against the Houston Rockets, and they did just that. However, things got wild during a game that featured an early exit (due to injury) for Kawhi Leonard and a crazy overtime period that saw multiple lead changess. In the end, though, Manu Ginobili emerged as something of a star of the evening, as the future Hall of Fame guard made two of the more noteworthy plays in the game.
First, Ginobili turned back the clock and threw down a wildly unexpected dunk near the end of the first half.
Then, he put a cap on things with a game-saving block on James Harden just before the final buzzer sounded.
That seemed to please Spurs fans, or at least one of them, in attendance.
