SAN ANTONIO (AP) Spurs guard Manu Ginobili is back in the starting lineup for Game 5 against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday night.
Ginobili replaces Danny Green, who is shooting just 8 of 28 in the Western Conference finals. It's the first start for Ginobili since March 23 and just his eighth all season.
Spurs coach Gregg Popovich wouldn't discuss any lineup changes before the game. But the move is a big shake-up for the Spurs after they dropped Games 3 and 4 in Oklahoma City following a 20-game winning streak.
Ginobili is averaging 13.1 points in the playoffs.
