Manu Ginobili | 18 points (6-of-12 shooting), 5 assists, 4 turnovers
Ginobili did limit his turnovers but there were two in the final quarter that really came back to haunt him as well as the Spurs.  In a way, you just can’t get mad at Ginobili as the things he does he has been doing since he put on a Spurs jersey.  You can sit and say, this is the finals, there is a time and place to do what he has been doing, trust me I know, I said the same thing.  This is him though.  This is how he plays.  Ginobili came on and scored 18 points in his final game of the season.  The key was for him go to come and get him going.  He had glimpses of the old Ginobili, the slicing through defenders and finishing at the rim.  We needed to see more of this from him, not taking three’s early in the shot clock.  He wasn’t as consistent as one would hope for.  If you have played organized basketball before you know sometimes they fall, sometimes they don’t.  This was the case for Ginobili.

Final Grade:  C
