PARKER SHINES IN SAN ANTONIO VICTORY
Wed, 28 Nov 2012 01:30 AM EST

Tony Parker called it’s a game that ”could have gone either way.” But with an ideal performance in the 2nd overtime, Parker made sure his Spurs came out on top.

Parker scored 6 of his 32 points in the 2nd OT, Tim Duncan had 26 and the Spurs beat Raptors 111-106, their 4th straight victory over the Raptors.

Duncan related no one was more vital to San Antonio’s win than Parker, who made all 3 shots he took in the 2nd overtime and topped 30 points for the 2nd straight game. ”He’s our closer and he has been that way for the last couple of years,” Duncan expounded. ”He steps up and makes big shots for us. That’s what we ask him to do and he’s delivered for us.”

Manu Ginobili scored 15 points; Danny Green had 13 and Boris Diaw 11 as the San Antonio Spurs won their 3rd straight and improved their NBA-best road record to 7-1.

”We show pride in winning on the road,” Ginobili announced.

Parker made jump shots on consecutive possessions with less than 1 minute, 15 seconds left in the 2nd overtime as the Spurs held on.

”We had to work hard for this one,” Parker declared.

Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich concluded not that he was happy about it.

”In a lot of ways, (Toronto) played better than we did,” Popovich said. ”They destroyed us on the boards. For almost all of the meat of the game they just threw it up there missed it and they’d go get it again. That kept them in the ballgame. We did a better job in the overtimes defensively and on the boards, and that got us over the hump.”

DeMar DeRozan led Toronto with 29 points, while rookie Jonas Valanciunas had 21. Kyle Lowry scored 20 points and Ed Davis had 15 points and 14 rebounds for the Raptors, who’ve lost their past 3 games by a combined 7 points.

Toronto’s Andrea Bargnani had a disappointing game, scoring 4 points and making only 2 of 19 field goal attempts.

”Today was certainly an especially bad night,” Bargnani claimed, ”maybe the worst.”

Raptors coach Dwane Casey dismissed recommendations that he should have benched Bargnani, the 1st overall pick in the 2006 draft.

”I’ve got to go with Andrea,” Casey said. ”He’s our guy.”

Valanciunas calmly made free throws to tie the score at 88 with 24 seconds left in regulation. San Antonio gave the ball to Parker, who let the clock run down to 6 seconds, but almost turned it over as he drove. Parker’s 3-point effort slid short, giving Toronto one-10th of a 2nd to try for the winning basket, but Bargnani’s no-look shot went wide, sending the game to overtime.

Spurs led 92-90 on Duncan’s dunk with less than 30 seconds left in the 1st overtime when a nasty by Parker gave possession to the Raptors. But Parker nicked Jose Calderon’s inbounds pass and raced in for a layup, giving the San Antonio Spurs an 94-90 lead with 24 seconds left. NFL scores
