What to do about Manu? Spurs' Ginobili slumping in NBA Finals heading into Game 5 against Heat

SAN ANTONIO — Manu Ginobili isn't scoring.

He's played a careless game instead of his famously creative one. So far in these NBA Finals, where LeBron James and Dwyane Wade just delivered a forceful reminder in Game 4 about stars deciding this series, the San Antonio Spurs are still waiting on one of their biggest.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Friday that Ginobili hasn't found a rhythm in the playoffs. But he says it's too simplistic to merely ask, "What are we going to do to get him going?"

Simplistic, maybe. But their prospects of the Spurs winning a fifth title may hinge on just that.

Ginobili scored just five points in Thursday night's loss. He's averaging 7.5 points in the Finals, down from his 11.8 scoring average during the regular season.
