Found June 01, 2013 on Project Spurs:
San Antonio Spurs' Danny Green, Manu Ginobili and Cory Joseph spoke to the media after a recent practice to talk, what else, the NBA Finals. Green weighed in on the Pacers and Heat series and noted how physical the two teams are with one another and scouting the teams in anticipation of the Finals. Ginobili spoke on making a return to the Finals after a long drought, and being appreciative of this postseason run. Manu went on to state the team isn't familiar too much with East teams and in particular how he has not face Miami this season. Interesting to note Manu said he would like to see Indiana advance simply for the Spurs to gain the home court advantage. Joseph talked about how much the D-League experience helped him this season and how it is paying off in the playoffs and more.
