Video: Spurs' Manu Ginobili hits game-winning 3 to beat Warriors in double OT

Spurs guard Manu Ginobili hit a game-winning three-pointer with 1.2 seconds remaining in double-overtime to defeat the Warriors 129-127 in San Antonio on Monday night.

"I was wide open," Ginobili said in a post-game interview. "I didn't have any other option. If I could have thought about it and done something else, I could have. It was only the second shot I made all day. Good timing though."

The Argentinian guard finished with 16 points (on five-for-20 shooting and two-for-nine from deep), 11 assists and seven rebounds to help the Spurs finish off an unforgettable come-from-behind victory. Golden State blew a 16-point lead with four minutes remaining in regulation while also giving back a five-point lead in the first overtime and a three-point lead in the second overtime.

The game-winner came shortly after Ginobili launched an ill-advised, deep three-pointer with 44 seconds remaining that nearly cost the Spurs the game.

"I went from trading him on the spot to wanting to cook him breakfast tomorrow," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich quipped.

Ginobili's three also overshadowed a potential game-winning transition lay-up by seldom-used Warriors guard Kent Bazemore just seconds earlier.
