Manu: Next two are must-wins for Spurs

Manu: Next two are must-wins for Spurs
By Mike Monroe

MINNEAPOLIS — Beginning with tonight's game against the Timberwolves at the Target Center, the Spurs have 11 games in 18 days, a stretch that includes four sets of back-to-back games and opponents like the Cavaliers, Lakers, Celtics and Magic.

The Timberwolves and Clippers, Saturday's opponent at the AT&T Center, have only 39 wins between them and the Clippers are 13th and the Wolves 16th in the West.

According to Spurs guard Manu Ginobili, that puts both weekend games in a special category.

“Must wins, both,” said the Spurs' emotional leader, back in the starting lineup since Tony Parker's hand injury put him on the shelf for four to eight weeks.

“It's more about being mentally ready than physically ready,” Ginobili said. “Both are teams that don't have a shot at making the playoffs, so they don't have much to lose, and we do.

“It's very important to keep our focus, play hard for 48 minutes”

With 26 points on 4 of 4 shots from distance in only 20 minutes of PT. Efficient eviceration.
Wolves' fan: ginobili vs. the wolves is like he's just kind of laughing to himself all game...kind of like he thinks it's cute that they're trying to play basketball.
