Manu Ginobili has not had the greatest NBA Finals thus far. While his Spurs do lead the Heat, two games to one, in the best-of-seven series, the 35-year-old guard has looked every bit his age, most of the time. He nearly cost the Spurs a win in Game 1 and he was dreadful in Game 2.
Game 3 was more of a mixed bag. Ginobili’s seven points on 3-for-7 shooting were nothing special, but he did record six assists in 23 minutes. He didn’t hurt the Spurs, so there’s that.
Oh yeah, and he went airborne for a pair of ferocious dunks that made the Heat ask to check Ginobili’s birth certificate. There was his two-handed number in the first quarter, followed by a one-handed tomahawk in the third on a fast break. The Spurs fans were happy, but they seemed as surprised as the Heat were that the aging sixth man could still get up like that.
