"Harden gotta shave his beard and donate to Ginobli's bald spot after that block."
The NBA Playoffs have been anything but thrilling thus far but last night's pivotal Game 5 between the Rockets and Spurs gave us hope moving forward.
It wasn't always pretty- both teams combined to miss 55 threes- yet it was a tightly contested game featuring 14 lead changes including a series of back and forth swaps in the final minutes of regulation.
In the end, the Spurs escaped with a 110-107 overtime victory and a 3-2 series lead, capped off by 39-year old Manu Ginobili's block on James Harden as time expired.
#NBATwitter was grateful for the nail-biting finish to Game 5. Check out some of the highlights and reactions below, and let's hope tonight's Celtics vs. Wizards Game 5 (series tied 2-2) can keep the momentum rolling.
