The first two games served as a reminder that the Spurs' offense is a Tony Parker first offense and that when he's aggressive, it's a really good offense. Game 2 was a prime example of how Parker, despite having a dreadful shooting night, stayed aggressive and found his teammates on his way to 18 assists. Memphis Grizzlies guard Mike Conley, Jr. said after the game that Parker's playmaking has put the Grizzlies defense on their heels.
"Well, on pick-and-rolls, they had such good spacing that it allowed him (Parker) to manipulate and move the ball different ways, get into the paint and draw-and-kick," Conley said. "When you have a guy that's able to create plays like that for other people, it really puts the defense at its mercy."no comments
