Manu Ginobili Blows Wide-Open Dunk [VIDEO]
Manu Ginobili did his anti Michael “Air” Jordan impression during a 106-91 Spurs’ win over the Jazz on Sunday.
The San Antonio Spurs beat the Utah Jazz 106-91 in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals on Sunday. It was a great performance by the Spurs. However, it wasn’t a great performance by Manu Ginobili on a dunk attempt.
Ginobili had a breakaway dunk opportunity with less than three minutes to play in the second quarter. Ginobili had such an easy opportunity, commentator Mark Jones said, “Ginobili with a room-service bucket.” Just as Mark Jones said those words, Ginobili blew the dunk. Jones’ then said, “Almost. Wow, he blew it.” I found it funny that Mark Jones said, “Ginobili with a room-service bucket. Almost.” Maybe it’s just me, but it showed just how unexpected Ginobili’s blunder was.
Ginobili finished the game with seven points in 25 minutes. Ginobili shot 3-for-10 from the field. It wasn’t one of Ginobili’s more memorable performances. The dunk attempt certainly wasn’t great either. But hey, the Spurs will take a 15-point win any day. Game 2 is Wednesday night at 7pm ET.
