Before the game 1 play tonight, lets get back on the best Game 1 Spurs played in the past few years. In 2008 the Spurs was in a 3rd seed and defending champion, faced the reloaded Phoenix Suns, in NBA playoffs where they acquired Shaquille Oneal in a trade.
The Spurs struggled and they need a clutch three from Michael Finley to force an overtime.
When they were down again in overtime which a three to tie, Ginobili drives to the basket and found a wide open for Tim Duncan for a three and sank it.
In second overtime, Steve Nash made a perfectly executed play three point shot to tie the game with 15 seconds left. Spurs didn’t call a timeout and Manu Ginobili drives to his strong side and made a game winning lay up.
The Spurs closed the series in five games.
