In tonight’s Spurs vs. Lakers game, Manu Ginobili was up to his trickery again.
After taking an offensive rebound from Tiago Splitter and the Laker’s defense resetting, Ginobili saw a seam. And that’s all he needed.
Manu took the pass near half-court and in one motion, wound up like a pitcher and fired the basketball to Matt Bonner under the basket for a layup. Amazing.
Despite whipping that pass through five purple and gold jerseys, it’s difficult to see how amazing that pass truly is. I’m sure someone will upload the video from the behind-the-basket perspective.
