Tony Parker Spurs star to miss end of season over leg injury

Spurs guard Manu Ginobili acknowledged he might have played his last game with Tony Parker after the point guard suffered a postseason-ending and career-threatening injury Wednesday night in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Rockets.

"I do what the team needs", Aldridge said.

The Cavaliers are the only team since the Minneapolis Lakers in 1949 and 1950 to win their first seven playoff games in consecutive seasons. "So I'm always going to try to be aggressive out there and try to make things happen". James Harden is averaging 28.4 points and 8.4 assists while Lou Williams is averaging 15.9 points and 3.4 rebounds.

"We have a great coaching staff and they do a great job of scouting, so we know all their guards, we know all their bigs", he said.

"Yeah, it goes through your mind", Ginobili said. Houston has to get back to playing fast and free, and they've just got to knock down their threes.

Jonathon Simmons hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to leave San Antonio up 72-66 entering the fourth quarter. Harden was outraged at the call, flipping over on his stomach on the court and kicking his legs in disbelief.

San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker has undergone successful surgery to fix a ruptured muscle tendon but there is no timetable for his eventual return, the National Basketball Association team said Friday, May 5.

The Spurs said in an injury update on Friday that the 34-year-old underwent an operation to fix his left quadriceps tendon in a procedure carried out by team physician David Schmidt. Green had 11 points. Patrick Beverley received a technical foul in the fourth quarter. The Houston Rockets are allowing 31.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44 rebounds per game. The forward is averaging 30.3 points on 16.8 shots while committing just 2.3 turnovers per game.

If Houston decides to switch, and is able to keep him from getting all the way to the rim, Leonard is shooting a ridiculous 62.7 percent on mid-range attempts in the playoffs, according to NBA Stats. "It's not an easy task, but I think he got a little more comfortable as the game went on".
