Leonard pours in 25 to carry Spurs over Knicks

  • Kristaps Porzingis #6 of the New York Knicks

Manu Ginobili's legend grew a bit longer with a freaky 3-point shot during the Spurs-Knicks game on Tuesday night in NY.

Late in the third quarter of his Spurs' 100-91 victory over New York, Ginobili attempted to lob a pass to LaMarcus Aldridge over a fronting Doug McDermott.

Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich was just as confused as the officiating crew on the court and admitted he had no idea that the ball had gone through the hoop.

Referees eventually credited the basket to Ginobili but incorrectly ruled it a two-point basket.

"I did not [see the ball go in], in all honestly".

"It worked perfectly. It went so clean that nobody saw it because once you make a shot like that, you want it to count". Gregg Popovich didn't even know what to say. "Then everybody started grabbing me and saying the ball went in".

Sixteen years after Tony Parker became the NBA's first French point guard, Frank Ntilikina is doing his native country proud in weaving a commendable rookie year as the No. 8 pick in the draft.

San Antonio (26-12) bounced back from its 93-79 loss to a depleted Detroit team on the road Saturday to win for the seventh time in nine games.

"I thought he was soft, I thought he didn't care, I thought he thought he was too cool for school and I said no and we sent him out of town", Popovich said.

"It was very awkward, but common sense, I guess. The refs reviewed it and we got it".

This is not the first time this season the Spurs have sat players due to "return from injury management", but it's particularly jarring given the number of guys they're sitting.

Manu Ginobili, in his 16th season with the San Antonio Spurs, proved Tuesday night that he's still got it. "I think a lot of people gain confidence from other people's success, just knowing that it could happen".
