VIDEO: Manu Ginobili Hits Half-Court Shot At Third Quarter Buzzer

Manu Ginobili was in the midst of a slow night during the NBA playoff matchup between the San Antonio Spurs and Memphis Grizzlies. But with time winding down in the third quarter and the Memphis holding all the momentum, Ginobili reached into his bag of tricks while throwing up a desperation heave from nearly half-court. The Grizzlies held a seven-point lead at the time, but after O.J. Mayo missed a free throw attempt, Ginobili came out of the scramble, stumbled, bumbled and drained a heave from half-court to cut the Spurs' deficit to four.

If the Spurs come back to tie this or take the lead late, we'll look back on this and know why. Whether it provides the Spurs with a spark or is just another amazing shot for naught remains to be seen, but it was one heck of a highlight.
