San Antonio Spurs vs. New York Knicks: Lineups, preview & prediction 1/2/18

San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard set multiple season-highs on Tuesday against the New York Knicks with 25 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 4 steals and 3 three-pointers.

As the third quarter came to a close with the Spurs looking to add to a healthy lead against the New York Knicks, Ginobili attempted a pass to Aldridge under the basket.

When the National Basketball Association passed new rules this past summer prohibiting teams from resting healthy players, it might as well have been called the Gregg Popovich Rule.

But Ginobili knew the ball went through the basket and was desperately shouting at the refs to let them know that the ball had gone in.

"It went so clean that nobody saw it and I went insane because once you make a shot like that, you want it to count", Ginobili said. Afterward, Popovich said he didn't even see the shot go in himself, but he argued in favor of his player. Michael Beasley grabbed it and began dribbling up the court as Ginobili and other Spurs waved frantically to the officials that the ball had actually gone into the basket.

The play was followed a unusual sequence of events as the refs initially didn't count the shot.

Leonard went all out Tuesday and because of that, he will likely be sitting out the second night of a back-to-back on Wednesday.

"I think he is". Common sense I guess.

Danny Green still isn't 100 percent according to Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and may be shut down for a while.

This is not the first time this season the Spurs have sat players due to "return from injury management", but it's particularly jarring given the number of guys they're sitting.

"I've been working on it for a long time". "I just threw it up because [Aldridge] was being fronted". And I guess I threw it too hard.
