Manu Ginobili leads Spurs bench brigade in losing causePosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Miami Herald reporting on the Heat-Spurs NBA Finals:
The San Antonio Spurs sported the highest-scoring bench in the NBA during the regular season.
Spurs reserves lived up to that billing Sunday night, but it wasn’t enough to save them as LeBron James and the Heat evened their best-of-7 NBA Finals with a 98-96 victory in Game 2 at AT&T Center.
The Spurs’ bench outscored the Heat’s reserves 37-12. On most nights, that would have been enough to guarantee a victory.
But this wasn’t most nights.
James, bouncing back from his Game 1 disappointment — when he was forced to sit out the final four minutes with leg cramps after an air-conditioning failure — erupted for 35 points and 10 rebounds.
