Manu Ginobili pulled off an astonishing last-gasp defensive block as the San Antonio Spurs dug deep to claim a 110-107 victory over the Houston Rockets in their NBA Western Conference play-off series on Tuesday.
Green later tweeted something seemingly meant as a response to Thomas, whose Celtics are tied with the Wizards 2-2 with Game 5 on Wednesday: "Just get through that series bro ..."
Spurs' Patty Mills (08) closely defends HoustonRockets' Trevor Ariza (01) in Game 3 at the Toyota Center on Friday, May 5, 2017.
Tonight's game is at San Antonio, with Game 6 scheduled for Houston, and the deciding Game 7 if it's needed back in San Antonio. But nothing to worry about - Danny Green and Ginobili made up for it.
Green had 16 points and five rebounds while Ginobili had 12 points, seven rebounds and five assists. The Spurs were able to squeeze pass the Rockets but it came at a cost as All-Star forward Kawhi Leonard injured his ankle. Expect Houston to play as hard as it can in a potential elimination game for the Rockets. It seemed like he was being held or he was unaware if the ball was coming to him. Those averages go down to 18.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 5.0 assists on 14 shots in the Spurs' two defeats.
Popovich said after the game he was not sure how serious Leonard's injury was.
"It wouldn't be a very good situation if me and Clint got into foul trouble". Kawhi Leonard is questionable or probable for Game 6 depending on what website you look at.
"I was trying to keep them in front of me", Harden said.
Due to the Rockets and Spurs losing significant pieces, the Warriors are most likely going to advance to the finals. The Spurs were tied with the Rockets 101- 101.
So far in the series against the Rockets, Leonard is averaging 23.8 points, 9.8 rebounds and 5.8 assists per game, while playing almost 36 minutes per night.
Leonard suffered the injury when he came down on the foot of Houston's James Harden while turning to run up the court.
"We let one slip away", Harden said. "Two All-Stars and even Pau (Gasol), who is 7-foot-something". "I tried to bother him as much as I could". However, he was unable to play a second in the five-minute overtime period. He played limited minutes for the rest of regulation and did not play in overtime.
Simmons responded by scoring 10 points on 5-for-13 shooting in 26 minutes.
NEED TO KNOW: As has been the case all series, the Spurs will try to limit Houston's 3-pointers. Nene is out for the remainder of the postseason after tearing his left adductor in Game 4.
But that wasn't the only highlight Ginobili recorded in Game 5.
Mills hit what would have been a game-winning three-pointer in regulation but the basket was ruled out after the 28-year-old Canberran was just beaten by the shot clock. The Spurs took bad shots at times, rushed shots at times and were tentative taking shots at other times.
