Spurs' Tony Parker out for rest of playoffs with quad injury

Spurs' Tony Parker out for rest of playoffs with quad injury

Parker had an MRI exam after sustaining the injury on Wednesday as the Spurs evened their Western Conference second-round series against the Houston Rockets with a 121-96 victory.

Parker, who scored 18 points, was clutching his left knee as he lay on the floor after missing a short shot.

Parker needed to be carried off the floor Wednesday night in San Antonio. If they win the series, naysayers and casual fans will be all too quick to point out Parker's injury, taking credit from Houston.

It is unclear who will start at the point guard position in Game 3 with backup Mills and rookie Murray having started for Parker during the 19 games he missed in the regular season. Not only will San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich have to prepare for the anticipated adjustments on the part of the Rockets, but they'll also have to plan for life without Parker.

Aldridge was invisible in San Antonio's Game 1 loss with just four points, and he had his struggles in Game 2 when he missed nine of his 15 shot attempts.

Game 5 becomes nearly must-win for Houston - go down 3-1 and this series is over.

We've entered the third season of the annual South Point-lined Play of the Day competition, effective July 1.

Parker finished with 18 points and four assists in 26 minutes.

Talking about its distribution network, the yoga practitioner said, "We will create more entrepreneurs". The aim, according to Ramdev, is to wean Indians off what he considers unhealthy food.

Having competed against him for much of Parker's 15-year National Basketball Association career, there are very people in the National Basketball Association that understand his value as much as Rockets head coach Mike D'Antoni, and he said that he hated to see the future hall of famer go down, even though it helps his team's chances of advancing to the Western Conference Finals. "Not saying they don't have good enough players to step in".

Trevor Ariza, who already had five treys in two quarters, put Houston up early in the second period before Leonard scored eight in a 12-5 spurt to close the break strong and take a 43-39 lead at halftime.

Parker had stepped up his scoring in the playoffs, averaging 15.9 points.

Almost 80 percent of the betting action is coming in against the Spurs in a spot where they're getting as many points on the spread as they have all season.

"We had several opportunities", Harden said.

"They're a machine, you know how Pop is".

Cleveland leads the series 2-0. Defensively, Leonard and the scheme made life hard on James Harden, but more importantly, the Spurs stayed home on shooters and made it difficult for him to get others involved.
