The bench was the driving force behind the Spurs win, with Manu Ginobli scoring 17 points off the bench. Tiago Splitter also had 10 points in a good showing for the Brazilian. The Spurs are certainly looking dangerous heading further into the playoffs, especially with Ginobli beginning to find his feet.
