Spurs' Ginobili wins sixth man award

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili has won the NBA's sixth man award given to the league's best reserve.

Ginobili led the Spurs in scoring, averaging a career-high 19.5 points with 4.8 rebounds and 4.5 assists. Ginobili came off the bench in 51 of the 74 games he played this season.

The Spurs have a 1-0 lead over the Phoenix Suns in their best-of-seven first-round playoff series. Suns guard Leandro Barbosa won the award last year.

Ginobli got 123 of 124 first-place votes. Barbosa came in second with 283 points and the Dallas Mavericks' Jason Terry was third with 44.
