San Antonio Spurs 97 Dallas Mavericks 95
San Antonio Spurs' reserve Manu GINOBILI is talented enough to be part of just about any starting lineup in the NBA. And as the defending NBA champions found out Monday, that includes them.
GINOBILI scored a season-high 37 points in the Spurs' 97-95 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday in his first start of the season. He was a game-time decision and played despite still recovering from a bruised finger he got Sunday against Portland.
"I woke up feeling pretty good. ... After I saw I could dribble and shoot pretty well, I had no doubt in my mind that I was going to try and help the guys,'' GINOBILI said.
The starting lineup change came because Tim DUNCAN was out with a sprained right ankle he sustained on Sunday.
But that wasn’t all from MANU as he also posted a game high 6 assists, 4 rebounds, 2 steals & 1 block shot.
