The Spurs won a thriller in San Antonio tonight. Kawhi Leonard sat out the overtime but SA pulled it out anyway, 110-107. James Harden had a last second three point attempt, but the old man, Manu Ginobli, the second oldest player in the league, blocked him from behind. Manu was a force all game. He can't play this many minutes every game, but he was not 39 tonight.
Houston's big man, Nene, suffered a season-ending injury in an earlier win against the Spurs, and San Antonio's long time all-star guard, Tony Parker, suffered the same fate. Both teams are under strength.
San Antonio leads the series 3-2 and returns to Houston on Thursday. Whichever team wins will be disadvantaged by injuries when facing Golden State. San Antonio, with the second best record in the league behind Golden State, has survived Tony's loss, but if Kawhi is out also, SA is done.
