With time running out in double-overtime, the Golden State Warriors momentarily forgot about Manu Ginobili. Whoops! Per the Express-News: “The Warriors botched their defense, according to head coach Mark Jackson. ‘It was a miscommunication,’ he said. ‘They were supposed to switch it. The screen wasn’t set, and two guys went with (Tony Parker) and Manu slipped out of it. A breakdown defensively and they got a wide-open look out of it.’ […] Instead of sticking with Boris Diaw or switching on to Ginobili, Harrison Barnes instead followed Tony Parker, who was already covered by Jarrett Jack, all the way out to 35 feet. That gave Kawhi Leonard the easy option to find Ginobili, who took advantage despite a respectable close-out from Kent Bazemore. ‘I don’t know,’ Jack said of the play. ‘I was guarding my guy.'”
