WTF. That’s what I was thinking when I saw the Kings outscore the Spurs 37-15 in the first quarter of Wednesday’s game. WTF is also what I said when a ref quickly called a tech on Manu Ginobili for saying WTF after a non-call during the opening quarter.
The Spurs did come alive after the terrible first 12 minutes and came away with a 114-110 victory. Manu had 19 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds and 3 steals in just 25 minutes off the bench. As for that silly tech, it’s just the 5th of Manu’s career. The last time he got one was during the 2009-2010 season and he’s never had more than 1 in a season.
