Manu Ginobili’s block rejecting James Harden’s final attempt to tie Game 5 led to the San Antonio Spurs taking a 3-2 series lead. San Antonio won the game 110-107 in OT despite losing Kawhi Leonard to injury for the extended period. It is unknown what Leonard’s status will be going forward, but Ginobili turned back the clock to make up for the loss.
The veteran Ginobili delivered 12 points, 7 rebounds and 5 assists along with the memorable game sealing block. James Harden added a triple double of 33 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for Houston but played poorly in OT. The Rockets will have to win Game 6 at home on Thursday to stay alive.
