Quote of the Game

“You don't have to worry about Manu (Ginobili). Manu's a competitor, he's a gold medalist, he's an NBA champion and a great competitor. You know he was gonna come out and play hard tonight and overcome all the obstacles that he had to overcome.”

- Robert Horry

The Buzz

Late in the third quarter, Manu Ginobili drove the lane and was hit near his eye. Holding his face, he walked over to the trainers and was treated for a quickly developing black eye. He returned to the game and exploded offensively scoring 10 points in the final two minutes of the quarter to lift the Spurs to an eight-point lead. After the game, Robert Horry gave Manu a new nickname, "The One-Eyed Bandit."

Key Stat...
13 Tim Duncan solidified the Spurs win scoring 13 points and blocking two shots in the fourth quarter.
