Even though this was a shortened week in the NBA, Manu Ginobili lived up to his nickname "Super G." In a rematch of last year's lopsided NBA Finals, Ginobili helped the Spurs come from behind on the road against Lebron James and his lack of supporting cast. (OK, so Larry Hughes blew up for 40 points the other night, don't plan on seeing Hughes ever again coming close to that total). With the Spurs down 4 points entering the 4th quarter, Ginobili stepped up and hit 4-4 3point shots and 18 points in the final quarter. The Spurs hung on to beat the Cavs 112-105 (Wednesday 2/13).
Ginobili's final line: 46 points, 8 assists, 5 boards, 3 steals, 15-20 fg%, 8-11 3 point fg% and 8-9 from the charity stripe.
