Gary Neal saves the day, and season, for San Antonio Spurs
HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: They were down 3-1 in the series. And they were down 3 with seconds remaining.
So, who did the San Antonio Spurs turn to when their season was on-the-line? Tim Duncan? Manu Ginobili? Richard Jefferson? Or even Tony Parker?
No, Coach Gregg Popovich called on rookie Gary Neal to tie the game with a clutch three-pointer. The Spurs then won in overtime.
To be fair, this wasn’t a complete shocker because Neal led all rookies in three-point percentage. However, most first year players would find the circumstances overwhelming.
Not Neal, though.
