With Game 3 of Finals being played tonight in San Antonio the defending champion Miami Heat are looking to take back home court advantage in the series.  The Spurs have two of there big 3 playing but where is the Slashing Argentinian (i made that nickname up)Ginobili!!!!!! #CharlesBarkleyVoice.  Ginobili is avg 9.0pts so far and even worse only took 6 shots in Game 2.

Obviously, everything runs through Tony Parker who should take the majority of the shots but if the Spurs want to avoid getting blown out again they have to get Ginobili involved. I’m not being critical of Pop(currently one of the best in the game if not the best), but I feel that he needs to setup some back cuts and screens for Ginobili to get some easy looks at the basket, those moves may also get him to the line.  Some top of the key isloation plays where Ginobili can take advantage of Chalmers/Cole in the 4th quarter, because the King will be on Parker.  Once #20 gets some easy buckets he’ll regain his confidence and start to play like the man that helped the Spurs win multiple championships.

Again the Spurs won’t win this series without Ginobili.  Or if Pop decides to get his Erik Spoelstra on and sit Ginobili ala D. Wade, but I don’t think the Spurs have anyone else with enough talent to fit Ginobili’s production.  So they will live or die with GINOBILLLLI!!!!  (Again in Charles Barkley voice) and I think they live by him tonight.  My pick tonight is Spurs 101 Heat 97.
