Ginobili says Jazz fans don’t compare to those in Europe

Salt Lake City is one of the hardest places to play in the league, especially due to the Jazz fans that fill up Energy Solutions Arena, where the San Antonio Spurs will play the Jazz for Game 3 on Saturday.

Spurs guard Tony Parker calls it one of the top five toughest cities to play in and Tim Duncan says he loves the atmosphere, but Manu Ginobili has dealt with cities and fans on a different level in the Euroleague.

Ginobili told News4WOAI that he’s never felt like he’s been in danger in Salt Lake City the way he has been overseas when batteries and other objects have been hurled at him.

At this point in the series, the only use for batteries would be to resuscitate the Jazz and keep them from flatlining for the rest of the series.
