The Texas circus from France was in town but I don’t think the people of the Bay enjoyed it especially the Tony Parker 32 point act. Coach Pop was impressed with Parker’s act but felt he needs to stop taking it to the rack so much because he’s not always going to be able to make circus shots like this one.
Sometimes, he gets a little obsessed about driving it and getting to the rim. When he does that, he turns down open jumpers and he forgets to play with teammates. But when he’s like tonight, like he’s played most of the season, he’ll stop, shoot the open jumper, he’ll get his share of assists, and that’s what we need him to be. He’s a scoring point guard, but he has to do it with the jump shot as well as a drive. He did that tonight.” – Gregg Popovich on Parker
The first two games, we didn’t play well enough. Got lucky in the first one. The second one, they kicked our butt. Tonight, we played a lot more physical, a lot better defense. On offense, we moved the ball. Hopefully, we can do it again.” – Tony Parker
Thankfully the travelling circus act didn’t come with a rap performance too.
