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.
