After the Oklahoma City Thunder held their own for the majority of the first half, the San Antonio Spurs pulled away going into halftime for a 58-44 lead. The Spurs outscored the Thunder 34-18 in the second frame.
Tony Parker and Danny Green are leading the way for the Spurs, notching 14 and 12 points, respectively, in the first half. Three of those points for Green came on a corner three in the midst of San Antonio’s impressive run to end the half.
He only got the open look, however, because Manu Ginobili threw an unreal crosscourt pass that left the Thunder defense clueless.
Seriously, just look at that pass. With one hand Manu is able to whip it all the way across the court, from one corner to another. Plus, he puts it on a line and right into the hands of the waiting Green.
This guy Manu is just something else. Every year you think he’s going to be done, but then every year he shows up again with his bald spot and tricky passes and makes fools out of people.
At the half Manu has nine points, two rebounds and three assists, filling up the box score in classic Manu fashion.
