Jordan on Game 5 loss:
It was a dumb play. I hit the ball. We did a good job fighting to put us in a situation to go up one. You can’t blame anybody on that but me. I tipped the ball.
Ginobili on Spurs victory:
That was the play of the game. That’s why I say we got lucky. The ball was going in, and he happened to touch it. That would have put us down one. Instead, it was a completely different ballgame. We got a little lucky on the play.
I thought it was the right call. I couldn’t tell, you know, and I couldn’t see it. … I hope to God it was the right call.
