Drafted by San Antonio in 1999, Ginobili did not break into the league until the 2002-03 campaign, but quickly made an impact with his left-handed play-making wizardry. Manu Ginobili won four championships with the Spurs (2003, 2005, 2007, 2014) and formed the Big 3 along with Tim Duncan and Tony Parker.
The Spurs started Ginobili in what could be his final game with the team although the Spurs legend hasn't announced his retirement.
Monday's game may have also marked the end of Manu Ginobili's career.
The Warriors have a number of players who can lead the charge on any given night, but the All-Star trio of Curry, Durant and Green did the honors with history on the line.
He was also asked if he still believes he has enough left in the tank to play another season. It's about how I feel, if I want to go through all that again.More news: If FBI wants to talk to Kushner, lawyer says he's ready
"One thing I've always said is Steve does a great job empowering people", Green said.
Manu Ginobili received a standing ovation last night from San Antonio Spurs fans, as well as his teammates and the Golden State Warriors, as he exited the game for what could be the final time in his career. San Antonio picked up the pace but had no answer for the Warriors scoring. They got buckets from Kyle Anderson (20 points off the bench) and 15 from Manu Ginobili in what may have been his final National Basketball Association game (he got the start, and the crowd erupted when he was taken out near the end).
"(Golden State is) maybe the best defensive team in the league on top of everything. Warriors starting center Zaza Pachulia missed his second straight game with a bruised right heel.
"We've been through it all", he said. Conversely, the Spurs were very cold in the first half of the period. But Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said to credit talent as the sole reason behind Golden State's current run is disrespectful.
"He called, we talked, we laughed", Brown said.More news: Kofi Annan says Trump should talk to Iran
"You know, for moments, I felt like I didn't in the Memphis series". "When you lose by an average of 20 points per game in the last three games, you look at them in the eyes and say, "Congratulations, man, you beat us fair and square. I said, 'Ok, it's on"'". LaMarcus Aldridge, arguably the Spurs' most important player after Leonard, scored just eight points and did not play in the fourth quarter. Despite the fact that the Warriors have cruised to their spot in the Finals, they are adamant that they can play better.
The game may have been a flashpoint in the season: Durant strangely shot just 2-of-10, as if he were trying to prove a point about something.
Ginobili was drafted by the Spurs in 1999 and joined the team in 2002. This series, I played better.
"We want to see if we can take it to another level", said Durant, who scored 29 points on just 13 field-goal attempts Monday.More news: World's second largest economy has its credit rating downgraded by Moody's
