Spurs' Leonard says he will play in Game 6 despite ankle injury

HOUSTON TX- MAY 07 James Harden #13 of the Houston Rockets shoots against La Marcus Aldridge #12 of the San Antonio Spurs during Game Three of the NBA Western Conference Semi Finals at Toyota Center Spurs' Leonard says he will play in Game 6 despite ankle injury

Leonard suffered the left ankle injury at the 5:37 mark of the third quarter, when he came down on the foot of James Harden as the forward was turning to run up the court. With game 5 happening in San Antonio, Popovich is going to need to make significant adjustments to counter the Moreyball fury and it all stems from one problem: Getting Houston off of the three-point line.

"We had a great opportunity (in Game 4) to go back to San Antonio up 3-1 and in a better situation", Ginobili said. It seems only fitting that this series will be decided in a Game 7 with Houston having one of their offensive outbursts in a Game 6 victory. "We let him play a little while just to see what he was going to be like, but it was obvious that he couldn't go". However, Manu did come up with the biggest play of the game when his team needed him most. "They're a bunch of competitive guys". Houston play a historically fast paced offense, play with energy, used limited substitutions, and played a long game. "It's going to be about taking care of the ball, playing confident and trying to minimize our mistakes", he told reporters after the game.

Spurs at Rockets, Spurs lead series 3-2.

All-star forward Kawhi Leonard injured his right ankle on Tuesday night and sat out overtime, finishing with 22 points and 15 rebounds in 38 minutes. The Rockets are 17-5 at home when facing elimination over the last 25 postseasons, the best record in the National Basketball Association in that span.

Spurs overcome Kawhi Leonard injury, beat Rockets in OT
Harden made only four of 15 attempted three-pointers and crucially coughed up nine turnovers - including three in overtime. The Ottawa Senators eliminated the New York Rangers and advanced to the Eastern Conference final with a 4-2 win in Game 6.


"Patty did tonight what he's done for us the entire time he's been here and given the circumstances we just wanted to start out better offensively and not get in a hole against these guys, because if you get behind you've got big problems", Popovich said.

His overall postseason numbers have increased from the regular season, as he's now averaging 27.8 points (up from 25.5 in the regular season) and 7.7 rebounds (up from 5.8 in the regular season) over the first two rounds.

Manu, at age 39, is the second-oldest player in the National Basketball Association (behind Vince Carter, 40, of the Memphis Grizzlies) Manu's been playing professional ball since 1995, joining the Andino Sport Club team in his native country of Argentina. San Antonio, leading Houston by three, chose to defend.

The Rockets are now down 3-2 in the series as they head back to Houston in a must-win Game 6 on Thursday. Kawhi's injury knocked him out of the last ten minutes of the game (including overtime) so it was up to Manu to step up his game. "I thought it was important to keep spirits high because we were still very much in the game at that point".
