Manu Ginobli finally made a mark on the NBA Finals, starting the game for the first time all season. He also put up a season-high 24 points go to with 10 assists. But the game belonged to Danny Green once again. Green shot a spectacular 6-10 from range which actually brought his three-point shooting percentage down for the finals. He blew past Ray Allen's record of 22 threes in the Finals, setting the current mark at 25. His 24 points helped San Antonio stretch the lead out to 20 points during the fourth quarter to boost San Antonio to a big win in Game 5, 114-104.
The series returns to Miami for Game 6 on Tuesday.
Danny Green has just tied the record for most 3-pointers made in an #NBAFinals series (22, Ray Allen). We're not even halfway thru Game 5!— NBA (@NBA) June 17, 2013

In 2009 Danny Green was the 46th pick in the NBA Draft. In 2013 he is one of the best players in the NBA Finals.— Jessica Camerato (@JCameratoNBA) June 17, 2013
