The Spurs greatest playoff plays: The Final Four

It’s Sean Elliott vs. three Manus.

It’s hard to believe that just two-and-a-half weeks ago we had 32 of the Spurs greatest playoff plays to look at, and now we are already at the Final Four! In a somewhat surprising outcome, we had three Manu Ginobili plays make it through, upsetting higher seeds and bigger plays along the way. Now it’s up to none other than Sean Elliott to take him down. Can he do it two rounds in a row? We’ll find out, but first here is a quick recap of how the Elite 8 went:

Bracket 1

(1) Memorial Day Miracle: 72%

(3) Tim Duncan 1st OT 3: 28%


Bracket 2

(3) Manu Ginobili game-winning 3: 67%

(5) Manu Ginobili 2OT layup: 33%


Bracket 3

(1) Robert Horry OT 3: 45%

(2) Manu Ginobili blocks James Harden: 55%


Bracket 4

(1) Manu Ginobili dunk on Chris Bosh: 64%

(2) Avery Johnson championship-winner: 36%


So there’s your final four plays: three Manus vs. the triple-M. (Corny, I know.) Who will advance to the Finals on Monday? You’ll have to vote to make that decision. Be sure to vote for a winner of each match-up, and remember everyone can only vote once, so make yours count.

First up it’s the only play with a name vs. the Cinderella run of the tournament. Can Manu’s three beat the Memorial Day Miracle? Time to find out:

(1) Memorial Day Miracle — Game 2 vs. Trail Blazers, 1999 WCF

(3) Manu Ginobili game-winning 3 — Game 1 vs. Warriors, 2013 2nd round
