Tony Parker to undergo season-ending surgery for ruptured left quadriceps tendon

Luckily for the San Antonio Spurs, their forward player, Kawhi Leonard, stepped up his game last Wednesday and made 34 points, seven rebounds and eight assists. He rose to the occasion, at least for one game, with his best scoring effort of the postseason.

San Antonio's win could prove to be costly because of an injury to guard Tony Parker.

More than seeding or home-court advantage, Popovich said, the Spurs needed Parker in order to stay competitive against the other heavyweights in the Western Conference playoffs.

If Parker is out for the rest of the playoffs, I'm not predicting that San Antonio won't win another game. The NBA's second-most efficient offense during the regular season plummeted further down the woeful-shooting rabbit hole Friday.

He called for stepped-up action against terrorism and what he called its root causes of poverty and social injustice. Of particular concern for many is what happens if Chinese-funded projects fail.

He drove into the lane for a short jump shot with just under 9 minutes left Wednesday night and grabbed at his left knee after landing. He rose to his feet but was unable to put any pressure on his left leg to walk, so he was carried off the court by rookie guard Dejounte Murray and center Dewayne Dedmon.

"Aldridge sooner or later is going to go off because he's an All-Star", Houston coach Mike D'Antoni said.

Parker's injury puts the Spurs in a hard spot this offseason because they have no cap room to go after a guard, especially with Pau Gasol expected to opt in for $14 million.

Gregg Popovich, known more for his scowl and scathing responses to media, summarized the status of Parker in three words on Wednesday night. In Game 2, he finished with 34 points on 13-for-16 shooting to lead all scorers. Hall of Famer Michael Jordan is the only player to average 31 points, 8.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds in a single postseason, doing so in 1991.

The Spurs held Houston to 36.4 percent shooting overall and 12-of-39 from 3. And he now has 89 playoff games with at least 30 points, which moved him past Kobe Bryant. Murray has shown some flashes of being a solid pro - most notably a 24-point effort against the Denver Nuggets in January - but he clocked a lot of DNP-CD's this season, and he's likely not be ready for a significant role in a heated playoff series.

"I hate it for Tony", he said. "My teammates do a great job of putting me in position". It makes me squirm even thinking about tearing the quad.

The Raptors were led by Jonas Valanciunas who had 23 points.

The veteran guard suffered the injury during the fourth quarter after coming down a bit awkwardly following a floater. Toronto only got five points from All-Star DeMar DeRozan, who didn't make his first field goal until the first minute of the fourth quarter. "Game 1 is good for us", the bearded one said with no hint of joy, "but we've got to get greedy".
