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.

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.

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)

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.

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.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - The 76ers never had a serious opportunity to win Brett Brown's homecoming. The tanking team is not even close to being on the same level as the San Antonio Spurs. The Spurs proved that by posting a 113-91 victory Monday night at AT&T Center. "You want to come back here and you want your guys to play their 'A' game, whatever level that is, and we did not," said the Sixers coach, who was a longtime Spurs assistant. "You give San Antonio a lot of credit. " But there was one lingering question afterward: Will the Sixers (15-56)

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - Brett Brown is visiting his old home. The 76ers' rookie head coach spent 12 seasons in the San Antonio Spurs organization. The Maine native was a part of four Spurs titles before he left in August to help rebuild the Sixers. "In regards to the NBA, there's no greater influence" than Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, said Brown, whose team will face the Spurs on Monday night at the AT&T Center. "To experience the success, and more importantly experience the culture and how you do things right . . . is difficult to put into words.

AFTER A LONG practice day that starts early in the film room, goes to the court and back to the film room - littered with meetings with his coaching staff and one-on-ones with his players, 76ers coach Brett Brown usually heads back to his hotel room (final plans on a home not completed, yet) for a little bit of relaxation. Thursday night, that included flicking on the television and catching a bit of the Miami Heat-San Antonio Spurs game. No doubt the memories flooded back to Game 6 of the NBA Finals last season, when Miami won an improbable game, aided by a last-second three by Ray Allen, to force a win-it-all game in which the Heat captured its second consecutive title.

NEW ORLEANS - Michael Carter-Williams looked refreshed. His face was lit up, his hair freshly cut. The eight straight losses and 18 of the last 21 that his 76ers have incurred were a distant thought, as the rookie talked with the throng of media that has swarmed into NOLA for All-Star Weekend. Carter-Williams spoke before his Rising Stars Challenge team took the court for a light morning workout. "Yeah, it's nice to get a break [from the regular season]," Carter-Williams said.

THE MODEL waltzed through the Wells Fargo Center last night, stylistically moving around the arena. Brett Brown hopes his young team didn't just take a glancing look, but studied the object from top to bottom, distinctly remembering all the parts. The way the San Antonio Spurs play is where Brown wants his team to be at some point, with the precision passing, the nonstop ball movement, the unselfishness, the desire to do whatever is needed for success. He can preach to his team all he wants about how he wants things to be. But seeing is believing, and what his club witnessed in its 109-85 loss is about as priceless a lesson as he can offer.

STEPHANIE AVERS was pumped up and ready. She had made the drive from Lancaster County to South Philadelphia to watch her favorite NBA team - the San Antonio Spurs. Wearing a black jersey with the name and No. 20 of Spurs swingman Manu Ginobili, Avers was sitting directly behind the San Antonio bench in seats that range from $80 to $130 at the Wells Fargo Center before service fees. It's become an annual ritual for Avers to come see the Spurs in Philadelphia to play the Sixers.

Tony Parker refused to consider it, though it can't be ruled out. Those last, agonizing moments of the NBA Finals may have been the last we see of these San Antonio Spurs. Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Parker have been together for more than a decade, through more than 100 postseason victories. They are proud winners who have endured some crushing defeats, but nothing ever hurt like this NBA championship that got away. "It's tough to come so close," Parker said. "Those last two games are tough, especially Game 6. " San Antonio officially lost its chance for a fifth NBA title with its 95-88 loss to the Miami Heat in Game 7 on Thursday night.
