ESPN: Ginobili efficiency keys Spurs bench

Ginobili efficiency keys Spurs bench
By Ernest Tolden


The San Antonio Spurs head to Oklahoma City with a 2-0 series lead against the Thunder in the Western Conference Finals.


Ginobili
San Antonio has been powered by its bench play, which is averaging a league-best 41.3 points per game this postseason. During the regular season, San Antonio's bench unit averaged an NBA-best 41.9 points per game.

In the Western Conference finals, Manu Ginobili has been the biggest spark off the Spurs’ bench, increasing his scoring production each round. Ginobili scored a season-high 26 points in Game 1, and added 20 points in Game 2, giving him back-to-back 20-point postseason games for the first time since the conference semifinals and conference finals in 2010.

1st Round Jazz 8.5
Conf Semis Clippers 14.0
Conf Finals Thunder 23.0


Against the Thunder, Ginobili is scoring with high efficiency. The former NBA Sixth Man of the Year is second on the Spurs with 46 points in the conference finals on just 25 field goal attempts. He also has a team-high 74.9 true shooting percentage, which calculates a player's shooting percentage adjusting for the value of free throws and 3-point field goals.

In the first two games of the Western Conference finals, Ginobili has found his touch in isolation and pick-and-roll plays. In the first two rounds, Ginobili was 1-for-5 on isolation plays. Against the Thunder, Ginobili is 3-for-6.

Ginobili is shooting a team-high 87.5 percent (7-for-8) in the Spurs' pick-and-roll offense in the conference finals, including 3-for-3 in Game 2.

The Spurs have won 20 games in a row dating to the regular season, which is the longest win streak in franchise history. San Antonio has also won its first 10 games this postseason, the second-longest in NBA history to begin a postseason. The Lakers twice won their first 11 playoff games in a postseason.

True as ever: Manu is, minute for minute, as good as any 2 guard in the league.

We just became best friends! Can't wait to dismantle whomever we meet in the finals. I know, it's one game at a time, but to think that people actualy think Miami will win the title makes me mad. Obviously none of those people are on this message board but please, Miami will need all the help they can get and if the refs are as blind toward the heat as they've been in the ECF, then that's their only chance of winning because it's damn near certain the SUPPoRTING cast won't be enough to overcome our balanced attack. In pop we trust. Go spurs go and let's get game 3 tonight!!!'
