The San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets meet in game three of the National Basketball Association second round playoffs Friday at the Toyota Center. He rose to his feet but was unable to put any pressure on his left leg to walk, so he was carried off the court by rookie guard Dejounte Murray and center Dewayne Dedmon.
The Spurs are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games.
We've entered the third season of the annual South Point-lined Play of the Day competition, effective July 1. The four-time champion has even scored more than LaMarcus Aldridge, who has arguably been the most disappointing player of the entire postseason. "He's not a good guy, he's a great guy and that's tough".
Kawhi Leonard starred with 34 points, eight assists and seven rebounds as the Spurs levelled the Western Conference semi-final series at 1-1. Houston point guard James Harden went off for 43 points, but the Rockets shot only 36.4 percent overall (32/88) and 30.8 percent (12/39) from the 3-point line.
In the team's first round series against the Grizzlies, Parker averaged 16 points and three assists on 53 percent shooting from the field. Toronto was blown out for the fifth straight time in Cleveland in the playoffs, losing each by an average of 24.2 points.
According to The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Spurs expect Parker to undergo season-ending surgery on his injury left leg.
Fedusa 'welcomes' court ruling on reshuffle
Zuma argued he was exercising his powers in terms of section 91 (2) of the Constitution of the Republic of South Africa. A legal review could potentially find Mr Zuma's reasoning for the reshuffle unlawful, which is what the DA wants.
San Antonio had suffered a 27-point loss in game one but bounced back, outscoring the Rockets 33-13 in the fourth quarter.
San Antonio needed more than just Leonard to beat Houston, though, especially without Parker.
Parker's replacement Patty Mills has actually been more efficient this season.
Ginobili also mentioned that San Antonio could utilize rotations without a true point guard.
Rockets players, referring to Popovich and the Spurs as a "machine", said they didn't think much would change with Parker out.
"First of all I hate it for Tony", Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni said. "His team is a machine. One person falls down, the next person steps up". Ultimately, it'll take a team effort and the Spurs' next-man-up mentality to try and make up for Parker's absence. "I don't know how you replace that". If San Antonio goes on to win this series, they will likely go on to face the Golden State Warriors.
