Tony Parker fell to the floor clutching his left knee in the fourth quarter of Game 2 between the San Antonio Spurs and the Houston Rockets. Parker laid on the ground as play continued until San Antonio regained possession and called timeout.
As play stopped, the home fans in San Antonio chanted Parker’s name.
The play happened as Parker drove on Houston’s Patrick Beverley and missed a floater. It was a non-contact injury. His teammates carried him off the floor.
Parker had 18 points and four assists at the time of the injury with the Spurs leading. His play in this game was a big reason why San Antonio had the upper hand on Houston all night long after getting throttled in Game 1.
Kawhi Leonard was the star for the Spurs in Game 2, but there’s no doubt San Antonio will need Parker going forward. Let’s hope he’s OK.
