Despite my earlier (slight) downplaying of Tony Parker's first-quarter success, the Spurs guard really has been fantastic. It takes two to tango, and while Tim Duncan has been doing a great job setting screens, Parker is also coming off them and looking to make quick moves. This, too, was absent in Games 3 through 5.
The Spurs’ success is based on spacing, so when the head of the snake (Parker) is just a bit slow coming off screens, the whole operation breaks down. All season, Parker has been spectacular with his timing. He’s rediscovered that in Game 6.
