The ageless wonder continues to wreck shop.

San Antonio Defeats The Rockets

The San Antonio Spurs’ Manu Ginobili said not in his house.

The Spurs held on to the win over the Houston Rockets Tuesday night. The overtime thriller put many on the edge of their seats as San Antonio won 110-107.

The Spurs would secure the win with Ginobili’s left handed denial to James Harden with time expiring. Ginobili finished the game with 12 points and five assists with seven rebounds according to ESPN.

San Antonio’s Patty Mills, who finished with 20 points, going 5-12 from three, told about his passion in Associated Press.

“I remember saying to a couple of the guys this is what we live for, these moments, to play in these situations,” Spurs point guard Patty Mills said. “Game 5, at home, you just try to soak it up and play hard. I guess that’s where all the passion comes out, at those moments. The diving on loose balls, coming up with whatever it may be, you’re throwing your body on the line in those situations.”

The Rockets showed the world that the Spurs continuity was better than the talent on their team.

The lost with Kawhi Leonard going down with an ankle injury in the third quarter. He still finished with 22 points and 15 rebounds in the win.

“It was frustrating because I wanted to play,” Leonard said. “But I was happy seeing my teammates out there putting in a good effort and getting the win.”

Now, in the efforts of Houston trying to win Harden came out with a triple-double. He scored 30 points and added 10 rebounds and 10 assists.

But he still put up a horrible choke job late in the game.

With the Spurs All-Star, Leonard, down going into overtime you would think he was going to put on a show. But that was far from the truth.

He turned the ball over three times in pivotal moments of overtime. He just kept throwing bricks going 0-2 from the field.

“I just missed shots,” Harden said.

Well he better pray to make some next time. Now the Rockets must win two in a row if they wish to win the series. That includes a game seven in San Antonio.
