SAN ANTONIO - Tony Parker, along with all of San Antonio, really, spent a restless night worrying about a gimpy right hamstring that hampered him in Game 3 of the NBA Finals and threatened the momentum the Spurs seized with a drubbing of the Miami Heat. A day later, Parker said he got some good news. Just how good the news is likely won't be known until Game 4 begins on Thursday night. Parker had an MRI on Wednesday that revealed a Grade 1 strain of his hamstring, the mildest level of strain.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - The Cleveland Cavaliers will no doubt take solace in their fourth-quarter rally against the San Antonio Spurs in Game 2 of the NBA Finals last night, when they cut a 27-point deficit to eight before falling 103-92. But the bottom line is that the Spurs have been the vastly superior team, and have left no doubt that this is their championship to lose. Just as in Game 1, the Spurs embarrassed the Cavaliers most of the night, with guard Tony Parker (game-high 30 points)

Something about Wednesdays and point guards doesn't work out well for the 76ers. Two weeks after Deron Williams torched the Sixers - and three after Andre Miller did the same thing - Tony Parker scored a game-high 37 points, the most any player has scored against the Sixers all season, to carry the San Antonio Spurs to a 100-90 win Wednesday night in front of 18,070 at the Wells Fargo Center. "Tony Parker was amazing tonight," Sixers coach Doug Collins said. "He had the ball on a string, and we were trying to do our best to keep him corralled, make him shoot jump shots.

The Tony Parker show Inquiring minds want to know, and the San Antonio Spurs' Tony Parker is talking. ESPN.com. says that Parker, who has one year left on his contract, wants to remain with the Spurs and is shooting down reports he wants to move to New York. On Wednesday, the New York Daily News said unidentified "close friends" of the point guard were saying he'd be open to a trade to the Knicks, should their attempts to sign LeBron James not work out. The sources told the paper that Parker and his wife would "love to relocate to New York.

Kevin Garnett paid no mind to the Boston Celtics winning their sixth straight game last night, claiming he's not even conscious of the streak. But the Celtics are on a roll, right? "We've got a little rhythm," Garnett said. Garnett scored 20 points and the Celtics improved to an NBA-best 8-1 away from home, beating the San Antonio Spurs, 90-83. They'll wrap up a four-game road swing today at Oklahoma City, when the Celtics will go for a season-best seventh consecutive win. "That's the make or break of the trip," Celtics forward Rasheed Wallace said.

Tony Parker was too much for the Lakers to handle - too accurate in the early going, too quick all night, and too deft on his best move of the game. Parker scored eight of his 30 points in the fourth quarter, including a stunning crossover move that fooled Devean George and ended the Lakers' final push as San Antonio defeated visiting Los Angeles, 95-85, last night to take a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven, second-round Western Conference semifinal series. Parker, who had 16 points in the first quarter when San Antonio took the lead for good, shot 13-for-23.

The team at the top of the mountain showed up at the Wells Fargo Center Monday night to play the team digging a hole so deep that it may eventually reach the planet's inner core. Fortunately for the coach of the team digging the historic hole, the man in charge of the team at the top of the mountain is one of his best friends. If nothing else, the coach of the woebegone winless basketball team from Philadelphia was going to get some quality time with his mountaintop mentor before the evening's proceedings began and another game was added to the 76ers' loss column.

The 76ers never really had a serious opportunity to win against Brett Brown's former team. The tanking Sixers are not even close to being on the same level as the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs proved that by posting a 109-103 victory Monday at the Wells Fargo Center on a night when Tim Duncan and Tony Parker took the game off. But there was one lingering question afterward: Will the Sixers tie the NBA record for consecutive losses to start the season on Wednesday in Minneapolis?

THE SAN ANTONIO Spurs played their third game in 4 days last night at the Wells Fargo Center, so it wasn't a question of whether any of their players would get the night off; it was more of who it would be. Your answers: Tim Duncan and Tony Parker. There was no hiding the reason Duncan sat, as the report before the game was listed as rest. Parker has a rib injury, which coach Gregg Popovich said a doctor "said something about being broken. " Brett Brown knows all about the Spurs' penchant for sitting players, but certainly didn't look at it as an advantage for his team.

Give Brett Brown credit. The 76ers coach is trying to keep the locker room together amid mounting losses. "So you choose different ways," Brown said. "It's just flushing out the elephant in the room. " He said if someone has to pass more, then his job is to make sure that player passes the ball more. If someone needs to accept not playing, Brown makes sure that player accepts his role. "If somebody's not in a spirit that's team-oriented, then that's got to be flushed out," he said.

SAN ANTONIO - The San Antonio Spurs will face LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers tomorrow night in one of the NBA's most anticipated early season matchups. So it would have been understandable if the defending world champs had their eyes set a little bit past the winless Sixers going into last night's game at the AT&T Center. Yeah, and the Green Bay Packers overlooked the Eagles. Like the home team Sunday at Lambeau, the Spurs took command early, building a 17-point lead after the first quarter with their precision offense while methodically wearing down the young Sixers, who dropped their 10th straight game to open the season.

SAN ANTONIO - The memories really began to stir in Brett Brown's head as he took his afternoon jog around the Riverwalk in the downtown where he was an assistant coach for 12 years. Four of those seasons ended with Brown riding in a boat along the Riverwalk as hundreds of thousands of fans cheered their newly crowned NBA champions. The San Antonio Spurs faithful got to do it again after last season, but Brown was knee-deep in preparing for his second season as the 76ers head coach.

ON THE MORNING of games, NBA teams will hold about an hourlong shootaround to prepare for that night's contest. It is more to get the bodies moving than anything else, perhaps work up a little sweat and go over the different schemes that have been put in place for the game. After a recent shootaround, before the last preseason game in Detroit, Brett Brown wandered over to the media gathered at the high school gym and couldn't contain himself. He excitedly talked about the current state of the organization, not an easy task when you looked at the talent on the court behind him. He was brutally honest in talking about the future and how far down the road the sunny skies are. He drifted back, as he often does, to how things were run during the mind-boggling success he experienced during his 12 years with the San Antonio Spurs, his voice rising as one story drifted to another.

LAS VEGAS - Sam Hinkie talks often about the "winning program" he wants the 76ers to become. There are mountains for the Sixers general manager to climb, and he may never complete his journey. But he's doing the wise thing by trying to emulate the team that won its fifth NBA championship last month. The San Antonio Spurs are the league's gold standard for long-term success and are the Sixers' model. Their blueprint, however, is hard to follow in an impatient society. Instead of luring quick-fix free agents, the Spurs are all about drafting and developing talent.

SAN ANTONIO - Beyond having his family nearby, 76ers coach Brett Brown had another reason for keeping his team in San Antonio for a couple of extra days between games. This town is a place for his current club to learn. He wants the success of the San Antonio program to rub off on them. He wants them to absorb all the winning attitude that emanates from the AT&T Center, where the four championship banners hang, banners collected while Brown was an assistant coach with the Spurs under Gregg Popovich.

SAN ANTONIO - It is almost a competition within the game for the San Antonio Spurs - who can make the better pass on a possession? The Spurs don't settle for good shots, they want great ones. So a good pass to an open shooter is usually followed by a better one to someone who is more open and/or closer to the basket. They did plenty of that last night at the AT&T Center, particularly during a burst that spanned the first and second quarters when they went on a 22-2 run, ultimately riding that to a 113-91 victory.
