NBA Finals: Manu Ginobili to start Game 5
Manu Ginobili will start in place of Tiago Splitter in Game 5.
SAN ANTONIO -- Gregg Popovich hinted pregame that he might be making a starting lineup switch.
"Maybe," he said in his very Popovich way.
It also might be an effort to spark Ginobili. The Spurs' sixth man has been painfully bad the first four games, shooting just at 34 percent from the floor.
Popovich said at Sunday's shootaround he wasn't going to be changing his lineup, but obviously that was diversion or he just changed his own mind.
The two best point guards in the East go at it in a series sure to be filled with drama.
