While the Spurs managed a convincing win over the Rockets Wednesday night fans of the Silver and Black weren’t celebrating.
The injury to Tony Parker means his season is over and while the team will miss his veteran leadership on the court, Jason Minnix at ESPN San Antonio feels the next round is still in reach.
“It’s a bad loss. It’s gonna be hard for the Spurs to overcome. You know the Rockets are one thing. With Tony Parker, their chances against Golden State weren’t going to be great anyway.”
Minnix says Popovich is a Wizard and can find a way to win in just about any situation.
But what about Tony Parker’s future? Does the severity of his injury mean #9 hangs up his jersey?
Minnix says it’s too soon to tell and he hates to say it but when you factor in the seriousness of a torn quad, Parker’s position on the court and the fact that he turns 35 years old in a few days, he feels we may have seen Parker play his last game with the Spurs.
Time will tell.
In the meantime there’s still a lot of basketball left and the Spurs tangle with the Rockets in Game 3 of their playoff series Friday night in Houston.
