San Antonio Spurs v Oklahoma City Thunder - Game Three

Manu Ginobili, Russell Westbrook exchange ridiculous threes to end half (VIDEO)


Manu Ginobili and Russell Westbrook put on a show at the end of the first half.

It was a fitting ending to an entertaining, up-tempo, a little out of control in the first half.

First Ginobili hits a contested three — which gave him 20 points in the first half and made him 5-of-7 from three.

Nobody is going to out swagger Russell Westbrook, who comes down and hits his own crazy three.

With Serge Ibaka back this has been a fun series again, changing the entire dynamic.

Report: Cavs sign Dionte Christmas

The Cavs are shorthanded in the backcourt right now, with Kyrie Irving still out and Iman Shumpert sidelined for up to three months. Yahoo’s Marc Spears reports that they’re bringing in former Temple guard Dionte Christmas, who played for the Suns in 2013-14:

In 31 games for the Suns two seasons ago, Christmas averaged 2.3 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6.4 minutes per game. He probably won’t get very many minutes if he makes the Cavs’ final roster, but there’s a chance they’ll keep him around on a non-guaranteed deal until Irving and Shumpert are healthy, just to have another body in the backcourt.

LeBron James sat out the Cavs’ preseason game against the Sixers on Thursday night, but Cleveland still held the lead for all but the final 5.4 seconds. Then, Sixers rookie Scottie Wilbekin did this:

Wilbekin, who played college ball at Florida, has a chance to earn legitimate minutes for the Sixers this season as they try to find young talent on the cheap. This is a good start.
