Manu Ginobili stepped up in Tony Parker's absence on Sunday, scoring 17 points with three 3-pointers, two assists and two steals in 22 minutes.

Manu made 6-of-8 FGs, taking his vaunted effiency to another level tonight. He's bound to have a bigger role with Parker out approximately four weeks, but be forewarned that Gregg Popovich won't burn out Manu just to maintain playoff position, not while he still has a deep group of guards and swingmen at his disposal.
