Manu Ginobili: ‘I Don’t Think We’re in a Crisis’

Ginobili and his teammates are trying to keep things calm and sane as the Spurs plummet in the standings — their lead over the Lakers for the top spot in the West is now down to just 2.5 games (with a meeting in LA on April 12.) From the Express-News: “Now seems like a good time to panic. The Spurs are slip-sliding on a five-game losing streak. The Lakers are closing fast. A season’s worth of good work is poised to come undone at the regular-season finish line. The line to jump off the Tower of Americas starts to the right. Take a number and say your prayers. Just don’t expect Manu Ginobili to be taking the plunge, even after Thursday’s 107-97 loss to Boston that came even with the Spurs at full strength, and sent their skid spinning into uncharted waters. ‘I don’t think we’re in a crisis, or playing like crap,’ Ginobili said. ‘We’re in a great situation. We’ve just got to keep fighting.’ There’s no denying the situation was better 10 days ago, when the Spurs (57-18) were on track to give Tim Duncan the best regular season of his career, and not his longest losing streak.”

    Eff the Spurs they’re gonna get crushed in the playoffs.

    ya, I mean it’s not like those 5 games were gimmes. All against competitive Western Conference teams and then Boston. They have some easier games coming up. They should maintain that 1 seed.

    @Roman…most of those 5 games were close games, they were short on players on all of those games except the Celtics. So calm down homeboy.

    LAKERS BABY. Spurs aint going no where…I think the nuggets can beat these guys in a seven game battle.


    I agree with Ginobili!!! The Spurs are in a great situation. They’re in the driver’s seat for homecourt advantage throughout the playoffs.

    not if they keep loosing. and its gonna be useless if they have no momentum. home court only gets you so much. if your star is banged up and your team has no momentum home court is useless. i think the lakers are more worried about being ahead of the bulls than they are the spurs
