Best Memes James Harden Blocked by Manu Ginobili

With 9.3 seconds left in over-time the San Antonio Spurs, defeated the Houston Rockets 110-107.

But it was Ginobili's heroics in overtime - athletically denying James Harden as the Rockets star shaped for a game-tying three-pointer - that stole the show at San Antonio's AT&T Center.

But it was a frustrating night for Harden, who led the scoring for the Rockets with 33 points and a triple-double but was unable to provide his team with the breakthrough in overtime. Harden, who finished with nine turnovers, said he was not worn out despite playing 43 minutes.


He said the injury happened while he was playing transition defense. Patrick Beverley drained five 3-pointers on his way to 20 points, Ryan Anderson scored 19 points while Eric Gordon was promoted to the starting lineup but finished with just 11 points.

"Yeah, I'm going to be able to play", Leonard said.

"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. They needed six games to best two division rivals to get to this point: the Memphis Grizzlies in round one and the Rockets in round two. If the Rockets force a game 7 against San Antonio, the Warriors won't play until next Tuesday. The Rockets have not lost to the Spurs in three previous postseason series. Simmons, who has been shooting OK in the playoffs, shot just 29.4% from three for the season, and was 0 for 4 on wide open threes in Game 5.


With Tony Parker out, the Spurs have been relying even more heavily on Kawhi offensively for several games. Leonard paced the Spurs with 12 points, with Mills hitting for 11 and Aldridge adding 10. It will be interesting to see if D'Antoni employs the seven-man rotation on Thursday or if he gives second-year players Sam Dekker or Montrezl Harrell a chance to contribute. The miscue helped contribute to the Spurs failing to take a shot at the close of regulation, forcing overtime.

Sitting on the bench, hampered by an injury that wouldn't let him do the things we expect from one of the game's elites, all Leonard could do was watch and seethe. "I made a bad, bad read on that play".
