Manu Ginobili

Manu Ginobili made history last night, becoming the fifth player in the Spurs’ NBA franchise history to reach 10,000 points for his career.

Ginobili passed the mark with a layup with 9:01 left in the fourth quarter, finishing his scoring in the disappointing loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

The defeat to the Spurs’ enduring rivals tempered some of Ginobili’s excitement of reaching the statistical milestone.
