The Spurs led by two points with 14.4 seconds left as Antonio McDyess looked for an open teammate from the sideline.

George Hill saw the Grizzlies double-teaming Manu Ginobili, who had missed six of 13 free throws, and made sure he darted to an open area.

It was one of his best decisions of the game.

McDyess found Hill, who had been money from the line all night. He was fouled immediately, then made his seventh and eighth straight free throws of the game.

"They did a great job guarding Manu," Hill said. "I just had to go opposite where Manu was going. They jumped and denied him, so I made a move for the ball. It worked out in our favor."

Hill finished with 16 points and was 2 for 2 from 3-point range, getting fully engaged in the series after a disappointing outing in Game 1.

"Coach (Gregg Popovich) wanted me to be aggressive, whether I'm making or missing shots. .?.?. I was just trying to attack the rim and get to the free-throw line as much as possible."
