Stat Line Of The Night — 5/29/12 — Tony Parker
Tony Parker is only 30 years of age, but he is often classified as being another one of the San Antonio Spurs’ aging veterans. Well this aging veteran still has quite a bit of energy left in those 30-year-old legs of his and he put that energy to good use during Game Two of the Western Conference Finals last night.
Going head-to-head with Oklahoma City’s 23-year-old All-Star guard, Russell Westbrook, Parker came out on top for the second game in a row, as he recorded a game-high 34 points to go along with eight assists and three rebounds during the Spurs’ 120-111 victory. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of Parker’s game last night was his efficiency, as he made 16 of his 21 field-goal attempts while turning the ball over only twice during what may have been his most impressive performance of the post-season.
With the win, the Spurs extend their winning streak to 20 games. Ten of those victories have come in the playoffs, and if they can put together another six wins, Parker will have himself a fourth NBA Championship ring. But for now, he earns “The Stat Line of the Night” for Tuesday, May 29, 2012.
