It was the block heard around the world.

With seconds to play in overtime Tuesday night, 39-year-old future Hall-of-Famer Manu Ginobili blocked 27-year-old James Harden and the San Antonio Spurs held on to beat the Houston Rockets 110-107.

Let that sink in for a second.

And then think about this: James Harden “was 9-years-old when the Spurs drafted Ginobili with the second-to-last pick of the 1999 NBA draft – or 34 picks after Devean George.”

You’ll find 5 great photos of the block and the moments that followed on USA Today Sports.
