Spurs hit Clutch Shots and Buzzer Beaters to win Game 1

Published on May 7, 2013 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

The Spurs were all but done last night in game 1 versus the Warriors. They however, mounted a huge 4th quarter comeback and hit a buzzer beater to win 129-127 in the 2nd overtime.

With 4 minutes left in the game the Spurs Trailed by 16 points. The Warriors missed their last 8 out of 9 shots and the Spurs ended the game on an 18-2 run to force overtime. With the Spurs trailing by three, Danny Green hit a three pointer to tie the game at 106 and force overtime.

Then in the 2nd overtime it was time for Manu Ginobili to shine. The Warriors were leading by 1 point with 3.9 seconds left and the Spurs had the ball out of bounds. Kawhi Leonard threw a cross-court inbounds pass to Ginobili, who buried the three pointer to give the Spurs the victory. Somehow the Warriors left him wide open.

“From the fourth quarter on we looked like a team that realized we were in the playoffs and it was going to be physical,” Popovich said. “We looked like we were looking for answers, I thought. In the end we finally woke up.”

Tony Parker led the way for the Spurs with 28 points, 8 rebounds and 8 assists. Danny Green added 22 points, including 6 three pointers. For the Warriors Stephen Curry finished with 44 points.
