Green, Ginobili guide Spurs past Rockets in OT

San Antonio Spurs star forward Kawhi Leonard expects to play in Game 6 against the Houston Rockets on Thursday night despite a left ankle injury. He stepped on Harden's foot while running back in transition with 5:37 left in the third quarter and then played limited minutes before sitting out overtime. Manu Ginobili switched with Jonathon Simmons to defend James Harden at the three point line. Leonard and Patty Mills each scored 20-plus points and LaMarcus Aldridge chipped in with 18 points.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said Leonard asked to stay in the game but the staff made the decision to sit him. Now up 3-2, the elation of the win quickly wears off with Game 6 scheduled for Thursday, and a potential Game 7 looming this weekend. The Spurs were tied with the Rockets 101- 101. Kawhi Leonard was doing it all for his team as he led the way with 22 points, 15 rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocks but he went down with an ankle injury and did not return so it was up to the rest of the team to pick up the slack. The Rockets have not lost to the Spurs in three previous postseason series.

"I was trying to keep them in front of me", Harden said.

Simmons responded by scoring 10 points on 5-for-13 shooting in 26 minutes.

Game 5 was a good one, a one-possession contest for most of the fourth quarter and overtime, despite both teams struggling mightily to score during crunch time. Leonard paced the Spurs with 12 points, with Mills hitting for 11 and Aldridge adding 10. Popovich does an excellent job of mentoring and molding his players. The miscue helped contribute to the Spurs failing to take a shot at the close of regulation, forcing overtime. "A bunch of competitive guys, they play way more confident at home.it's going to be about taking care of the ball, playing confident, just trying to minimize our mistakes out there". "I didn't think about it too much on the way here, but I'll think about it and I'll let you know tomorrow or the next day or maybe not".
