I guess I'll have to go back and watch those last five minutes again. But feel free to enlighten me on those stupid mistakes in the meantime.
Just went back to the play-by-play of last night's game for the last 5 minutes of the game.
Teams went 9-9 in that span.
All I can see from Ginobili is a missed layup, a missed 3 pointer (at the end of the shot clock, not with 15+ seconds left), a steal, an assist (for a Green 3-pointer) and a foul on James for 2 FTs.
From Miami's side, save for the 3 free throws from Allen (on Green's foul), all points in the last 5 minutes came from James (not the player Manu would be guarding save for that foul for the 2 FTs)
So feel free to point me to those "stupid mistakes" you mention.
As I said before, Manu still needs to improve his shooting percentage (all throughout the game and specially at the end of games), but other than that he is still helping the team in many other ways.
