The Golden State Warriors will be asking themselves that for the next day as they try to rebound in Game 2 after losing a heartbreaker to the San Antonio Spurs 129-127 in double overtime on Monday night.

With the Spurs down by one with 3.5 seconds remaining in the second overtime, Ginobili drifted all by himself to the left side of the court and received the inbound pass from across the court and threw up a rainbow shot that dropped to give the Spurs a huge win.
