GIF: Gary Neal closes the third quarter with an exclamation mark

USA TODAY Sports

With the clock winding down on the third quarter of Game Two in the Spurs vs Lakers first round series, Matt Bonner grabs the offensive rebound and gets it to Manu Ginobili at the three-point line. Manu completes 75% of his shooting motion before passing it to ... well, it looks like nobody, until Gary Neal enters the frame, dribbles to his right, pulls up at the free throw line and cans the jumper to make it a 10 point Spurs lead heading into the fourth.

Watch the way Darius Morris can't catch a break on this play. He runs at Manu to prevent him from taking a three, sprints after the ball only to have to follow Neal who turns him around and elevates before poor Morris can really contest the jumper.
