Video: Ginobili’s game winner vs. Grizzlies

More times than not this season, San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has pulled off some of the Manu Magic that made him a fan favorite through most of his career in San Antonio. While many considered Ginobili done after last season's NBA Finals performance, he has bounced back this season, and he saved the Spurs when they needed it most.

While the Spurs looked to be on their way to a blowout win over the Memphis Grizzlies last night, Mike Conley and James Johnson helped the Grizzlies on a run that forced overtime. It was all tied up with eight seconds left in overtime when Tim Duncan received the inbounds pass, handed the ball to Ginobili, who had a mismatch with Ed Davis and used a hesitation dribble to get by Davis for a lefty layup, giving the Spurs a two-point lead with 1.8 seconds remaining.
