Manu Ginobili Rooting For Pacers, Wants Homecourt Advantage

by June 01, 2013

Manu Ginobili said he wants the Pacers to beat the Heat so the Spurs can have the homecourt edge in the Finals. Via the San Antonio Express-News: “‘It’s not that we pull (for Indiana),’ he said. ‘I think this time it’s different than before because the homecourt advantage. It is a big difference. It’s not definitive. It doesn’t mean that whoever has homecourt advantage is going to win. But we all prefer to have a Game 7 at home than on the road if we could get to that point. But besides that, different styles, I think we can match up with both.’ At the very least, Ginobili said he’s hoping the series goes the full duration – and then some. ‘Let them play,’ he said. ‘Five overtimes in Game 7. That would be great.'”
