Ace Manu & Scola Post Double-Double

Surely they’ve had better night than this. Nevertheless both Manu GINOBILI and Luis SCOLA were key figures in their respective franchise win.

The San Antonio Spurs defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves 117-99 with Manu showing his other capabilities. He was on course for a triple double performance but settle’s with 14 points, 10 assists, 9 rebounds and one block shot.

As much he has been know for his shooting, he also threaded passes to Roger MASON and Richard JEFFERSON and found Tim DUNCAN and DeJuan BLAIR open under the basket. Wolves coach regarded him as one of the most dangerous player in the league.

“He just creates so much havoc with his energy,” Kurt RAMBIS said. “His ability to crash the glass, get steals, play defense, shoot long shots, penetrate and find guys open. He just plays an unorthodox style of basketball that makes it difficult to cover.”

Not to forget, even Spurs coach Gregg POPOVITCH was all amazed with his all around game.

“Tonight was probably one of his best all around games,” Pops said. “He played well defensively. He rebounded fantastically and offensively, he looked like Manu. Everybody is excited to see him play that way.”

Meanwhile SCOLA too had his own personal double-double, as always helping his team in both scoring and rebounding. The Houston Rockets at one point trailing their opponent the New Orleans Hornet, came back to win the game 108-100.

Much of this thanks to SCOLA’s 13 points, 12 rebounds and 1 steal to his credit. In his own words “It wasn’t looking very good for us, but we came back and closed the game pretty good.”

Great to see to see the Tall Albiceleste in the best league in the world closing 2009 with such high numbers. Just a day earlier, Andres NOCIONI scored a season high 21 points (including 6 rebounds, 2 assists & one block shot) for the Sacramento Kings in their 106-101 win over the Denver Nuggets.

I agree with you John. I wish Manu could play like yesterday all nights!

Manu was awesome last night and showed that he is more concerned with winning and being in a position to win later in the season by not staying in the game to try and get one rebound for a triple-double. It showed he doesn't place too much emphasis on stats and this is a big reason he makes such an excellent 6th man in NBA. Very admirable of him, and a great game overall (for the Spurs anyway).

A perfect passing recital by Ginobili.

Ginobili was great... probably his second really good game so far this season.

But that win was at home against a weak T-wolves, Spurs havent beaten dificult teams, next game against Heat will be a good test to see if Spurs are getting better ou just beating -.500% teams....

That's the Manu Ginobili we all know and love.

Hopefully this will kick start his season.

He just plays an unorthodox style of basketball that makes it difficult to cover:) His energetic game is unusual! Kindest regards, proofreading and editing services
