NBA News – Old Manu Re-Emerges Against Pacers

If there was one thing that the superstars from San Antonio Spurs against the Indiana Pacers could have wished for, was to get some welcomed rest. More so, especially after some gruesome games during the last week. And they got it.

“We’re not used to games like this,” Manu GINOBILI said. “I don’t know how many times it’s happened this year. But we are very glad that we did have one.”

Manu barely played in the fourth quarter, but for most part when he was in action, he was beginning to show just exactly why the NBA selected him as the Best Sixth Man of 2008. He was a phenomenon from the bench, posting 26 points, 8 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals & a block shot.

“He’s starting to look like the old Manu,” Spurs coach Gregg POPOVICH said.

With the Spurs already in the driving seat, Coach Pops has decided to dig deep on his bench to give his players some well deserved minutes. Fabricio OBERTO had 5 rebounds & 1 steal to his credit.

Chicago Bulls were once again on the wrong side of the scoreboard, after losing 102-105 to the Atlanta Hawks. As always when they close, they seem to fall as the last hurdle.

Andres NOCIONI, in all his power did try to fire them from the bench, posting 15 points, 8 rebounds, 2 steals & a block shot.
