Manu Ginobili on retirement: 'It feels like they want me to retire'

Monday's game may have also marked the end of Manu Ginobili's career.

Veteran Manu Ginobili - in a potential farewell game - posted 15 points for the Spurs. But Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said to credit talent as the sole reason behind Golden States current run is disrespectful.

Reaching the Finals for a third straight season has been Golden State's destiny, and the consistency this team showed with its defensive focus and intensity was unparalleled.

Kawhi Leonard was, without a doubt, missed by San Antonio in their second game at Oracle. And since his arrival, he's been nothing short of stellar.

Stephen Curry scored a game-high 36 points on 14-for-24 shooting to go with six assists and five rebounds.

Ginobili had 15 points and when Popovich subbed him out with two minutes to go the San Antonio crowd gave him a standing ovation.

This season, Ginobili averaged a career-low 7.5 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists in 69 games.

"Somebody I grew up watching, unbelievable competitor, even more fun playing against him", Durant said after the game.

From the opening tip, the Spurs unleashed their own offensive attack on the Warriors and built a 23 point lead at one point in the first half.

"I felt more energetic, more needed, more useful to the team, so I ended up feeling better than the way I started", Ginobili said.

Set to take effect in July 2018, the bill would have created a nine-member commission to establish a regulatory framework. The governor submitted suggested changes that could be made to the bill during a special session over the summer.

San Antonio announced David Lee (left knee) was out in addition to Leonard and Tony Parker, which left plenty of burden on LaMarcus Aldridge's shoulders. "I can't lie", Durant said.

"He's done a phenomenal job and when you're going through that pain every day and that frustration of not being able to do what you want to do, it's hard to enjoy it at the fullest level", Popovich told reporters before Monday's game.

After a beleaguered playoff series against the Memphis Grizzlies in which many wondered if Ginóbili had anything left in his tank, the press' inquiries centered around the superstar's mindset.

Ginobili unselfishly agreed to come off the bench for more than a decade, an act that made the Spurs one of the great National Basketball Association teams.

"I have to choose between two truly wonderful options", Ginobili said.

Each candidate wants to take the seat formerly occupied by Ryan Zinke , who left the position in order to become the U.S. What's more, during the Democratic primary, Sanders trumped his opponent Hillary Clinton 51.6 percent to 44.2 percent.

Even following the Warriors' blowout win in Game 4, one thing became readily apparent. They proceeded to embarrass Utah with yet another sweep in the second round, all four wins by 10 or more points. Honestly. I think we're better.
