After missing six games with what San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich called a “variety of maladies," point guard Tony Parker made his return in a big way. He scored 22 points on 10-of-15 shooting in the 112-106 victory over the Dallas Mavericks last Sunday. The biggest news from this week is that the Spurs are finally healthy as a team and we may finally get to see what this team can really do as we begin the final stretch of the regular season.
Parker got off to a hot start as he scored 10 of first 17 for Spurs, rust? What is this rust everyone was speaking of? He did his damage with penetration of the Dallas defense and was on fire from midrange.
On Tuesday in Cleveland, Parker struggled as he shot 3-for-11 and finished with just seven points. Backup point guard Patty Mills filled in nicely as he had 16 points on 6-of-12 shooting and was 4-of-6 from 3-point range. It was expected Parker would struggle as he needed to find his rhythm in just his second game back from injury.no comments
