The San Antonio Spurs were moments away from capturing title No. 5 for the franchise versus the Miami Heat in Miami in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, holding on to a 5-point lead.
Then a three pointer by Ray Allen, missed free throws by the Spurs, and a few rebounds that did not go San Antonio's way and the Spurs saw their lead evaporate and lost in overtime, 100-103.
After the game, Manu Ginobili spoke to the press and needless to say, he was distraught over this loss. From words such as "tough moment," "we let it go," "devastated," to "it hurts," Manu clearly seems let down by the loss.
Manu is clearly upset over the loss, however, I am hoping he shakes it off very fast because the Spurs need him to be of clear mind in Game 7. In Game 6 the team was a -21 with Manu was a -21 on the court, and he finished with 9 points (2-5, 40%), and 8 huge turnovers.
If the Spurs hope to win Game 7, they need the Manu that played in Game 6.
What do you have to say Spurs fans about Manu's reaction to the Game 6 loss?
As I spoke long before in GS series. Manu is just like Romo. Polarizing player. One game he can play brilliant, next game he chokes. He needs to his ass together and play out of his ass. The Spurs pay him trillion dollars but he busted and fail to help out TD and TP. It just a shame when everybody busts their tail but all he does is to turn the ball over. He is just flatly stink.
well he had a Romo like performance with all of his turnovers at the wrong time...Fans get excited about his one game but this is him all year, a bust...
