After hearing a lot of criticism for his play through four games, Manu Ginobili broke out big in Game 5. Real big. As in the most points in a game he’s had all season.

He did it knocking down outside shots early but he also got into the paint and that started to create opportunities for himself and others.

He was back to being the old Manu, and that was too much for the Heat to stop. If he has one more game like this in the Finals, the Spurs will be hanging a banner.
