    Spurs outlast Warriors in double OT 129-127

    SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Manu Ginobili's play in the final 50 seconds was almost too much for Gregg Popovich to handle. Then again, the Spurs' coach is used to his veteran guard's free-wheeling style.

    Ginobili's 3-pointer from the wing with 1.2 seconds left in double overtime lifted the San Antonio Spurs to a thrilling 129-127 victory Monday night over the Golden State Warriors and Stephen Curry, who had 44 points in the opener of the Western Conference semifinals.

    The game-winning shot came 43.7 seconds after Ginobili took an ill-advised 3 that appeared to cost the Spurs the game.

    ''I went from wanting to trade him on the spot to wanting to cook breakfast for him tomorrow morning,'' Popovich said. ''That's the truth. When I talk to him and say, 'Manu,' he goes, 'This is what I do.' That's what he's going to tell me. I stopped coaching him a long time ago.''

    Ginobili's 3 capped an improbable comeback for the Spurs, who trailed by 16 points with 4 minutes left in regulation before going on an 18-2 run to close the fourth quarter and force overtime.
