Joakim Noah of the New York Knicks goes to the hoop during the first half between Kawhi Leonard #2 and LaMarcus Aldridge #12 of the San Antonio Spurs at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2017.
As the third quarter came to a close with the Spurs looking to add to a healthy lead against the New York Knicks, Ginobili attempted a pass to Aldridge under the basket. It's the first of a back-to-back, though, so it's possible head coach Gregg Popovich decides to rest a player or two, unless it's saved for Wednesday's matchup in Philadelphia.
Head coach Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs looks on as his team takes on the New Orleans Pelicans during the second half of a National Basketball Association game at the Smoothie King Center on November 22, 2017 in New Orleans, Louisiana. But Ginobili started signaling actively, stopping the game, allowing the referees to look at the recording of the shot. "I said, 'Yeah, the ball went in!' I acted like I knew what was going on". "I certainly wouldn't have to pass the ball", said Popovich, per NBA.com.
Manu Ginobili, in his 16th season with the San Antonio Spurs, proved Tuesday night that he's still got it.

"It was very awkward, but common sense, I guess". It's the second time these teams will play in the past week.
"I thought he looked confident".
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. "The refs reviewed it and we got it". "I just threw it up because [Aldridge] was being fronted. And it went perfectly".
