Manu Ginobili

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Friday that Ginobili hasn’t found a rhythm in the playoffs. But he says it’s too simplistic to merely ask, ”What are we going to do to get him going?”

Simplistic, maybe. But their prospects of the Spurs winning a fifth title may hinge on just that.

Ginobili scored just five points in Thursday night’s loss. He’s averaging 7.5 points in the Finals, down from his 11.8 scoring average during the regular season.
