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

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

Aldridge had managed just 19 points combined in the first two games, but stepped up in the wake of Parker's season-ending leg injury, scoring nine points in the fourth quarter to help the Spurs pull away.

Rockets players, referring to Popovich and the Spurs as a "machine", said they didn't think much would change with Parker out.

In close to five seasons with the Rockets, Patrick Beverley has had his fair share of battles with Spurs guard Tony Parker, but the relationship between the two goes back further.

San Antonio and Houston traded blowout victories to open the series and one of the teams will take a 2-1 lead when the Spurs visit the Rockets in Wednesday's Western Conference semifinals. But, it's hard to see him limping and hurting now and you kind of know we're not going to see him any time soon.

While the 34-year-old Parker is not the dynamic playmaker he was in his younger days, he is still hugely important to the team.

After looking lost in Game 1 of the series, the Spurs are back on track and have put the onus on the Rockets to find answers before it's too late.

He appeared to land awkwardly while taking a shot with 8:34 to play Wednesday and crumpled to the court.

Although San Antonio surely misses their veteran point guard, this team did succeed throughout this season with minimal contributions from Parker.

Parker had an MRI exam Thursday morning to determine the extent of the injury. Rookie guard Dejounte Murray, Kyle Anderson and Jonathan Simmons should get more of a chance to prove themselves as well.

Parker is in his 15th season and has helped the Spurs win five National Basketball Association titles.

The best-of-seven series is tied at 1-1 and moves to Houston for Games 3 and 4 on Friday and Sunday. "Game 1 is good for us", the bearded one said with no hint of joy, "but we've got to get greedy". Like the San Antonio Spurs and Tim Duncan, I keep hoping this will be the year they finally fall off. You can't win in the playoffs with just Batman, you need the whole Justice League. James Harden really struggled, going 3-of-17 from the field and 2-of-9 from 3-point land for just 13 points. Whether it comes to defense, starting core, or role players off the bench, they always seem to find a way to the top. It can't be the James Harden show.

Ginobili also mentioned that San Antonio could utilize rotations without a true point guard.
