Tony Parker hit just 6-of-20 shots, one 3-pointer and 2-of-4 free throws, but finished with 15 points, five rebounds, a career-high 18 assists, three steals and just two turnovers as the Spurs held off the Grizzlies 93-89 in overtime to take Game 2 and a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals.
Parker hit 1-of-2 free throws with 14.6 seconds left in OT to put the Grizzlies up by three, followed by a bad Jerryd Bayless miss from downtown. Parker was sensational all night, but the Spurs gave up an 18-point lead before winning in OT. Tim Duncan came through with a huge block, boards and bucket in OT to finish with 17 points, nine boards, two steals and four blocks after sitting out much of the fourth quarter with foul trouble, while Danny Green (11 points, three 3-pointers), Tiago Splitter (14 points, two blocks), and Kawhi Leonard (12 points, nine boards) all played well as every Spurs' starter scored in double figures. Game 3 is in Memphis on Saturday.
