Manu Ginobili passed in a 3-pointer, confusion and insanity ensued

In the third quarter of the Spurs' matchup against the New York Knicks, Ginobili was at the three-point line when he passed the ball to LaMarcus Aldridge, who was standing under the basket.

"I did not [see the ball go in], in all honestly". Eventually, the referees convened and awarded Ginobili the basket. Popovich later acknowledged that he himself didn't see the ball go in, but "acted as if I knew what was going on", CBS Sports journalist, James Herbert, said. Ntilikina played his season-high minutes (31:43) in San Antonio and notched a season-high 11 assists. All this is in just under 32 minutes per game.

"I felt good", he said.

With the Spurs clinching their 26th win of the season against the New York Knicks at the Garden, their head coach Popovich broke a tie with friend George Karl for the fifth spot on the all-time winningest National Basketball Association coaches list.

The Spurs were playing their second straight game without Rudy Gay, who is sidelined with retrocalcaneal bursitis in his right heel.

Officials on the court didn't notice, leading Ginobili to protest his case while running back on defense.

The calendar has changed but the Spurs rarely do. Instead of Aldridge receiving the pass, the ball went straight down the basket, barely causing the net to move at all. "Tony, he thinks he's going to play for 10 more".

Popovich didn't want Parker after the Frenchman's first workout as a teenager.

"I've been working on it for a long time, I finally was able to take it", Ginobili said.
