(Manu) Ginobili had no turnovers as the lead dwindled away, but recognized the sloppy play that cost the Spurs the momentum they had built.

“We got a little sloppy with the ball,” he said. “We didn’t turn the ball over that much, 11 in the whole game, but in that period we had three, almost in a row. Another (play) I remember was Tony’s (Parker) shot from the corner and LeBron got the rebound and he gets full speed and it’s really hard to stop him, and the balance was not there.

“It happens against them. That’s what they do. They live off that. If you don’t execute every single play and you’re not cautious every single play they can go on 10-0 runs. They’ve done it against everybody and that was a moment where we were not as strong and mentally strong.”
