"What I would say if I was there right now," Bryant tweeted. "Pau get ur (butt) on the block and don't move till u get it."
D'Antoni was asked if Bryant's tweets were appropriate.
"Yea, that's fine," he said. "He's a fan right now. He's a fan and you guys (the media) put a little more importance on that kind of fan, but he's a fan. He gets excited and he wants to be a part of it, so that's good."
Los Angeles went on an 11-4 run to cut San Antonio's lead to 54-50 with 5 minutes left in the third, but the Spurs rebuilt their lead once again.
Ginobili hit a pair of 3s to give San Antonio a 70-57 lead to close the third.
"I knew I was usually going to play in the third quarter," Ginobili said. "That used to be my moment. Now I know that I am not in my best shape physically, I thought I had a little window there and it went well."
