Tony Parker bends gravity to his will, everything falling for Spurs

ESPN

Parker's incredible runner was one of many, many shots that fell for San Antonio in the first quarter against Golden State.

The Spurs have had troubles in this Western Conference Semifinals series with Golden State because of their inability to stop the prolific Warriors backcourt of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. Early in Game 3, they have tried a new tactic: just don't miss any shots, especially ridiculous runners by Tony Parker.

I have no idea how Parker even contorted his body to get that shot up and over the rim, much less in. His body is facing the sideline as he puts it up.

But that was just the most incredible make of the first quarter for San Antonio, which made 15 of 23 shots — a cool 65.2 percent — in the period.
