PG Tony Parker
22.5 PPG | 6.2 APG | 4.7 RPG | 2.5 TO 

When Parker plays well, the team plays well and that is exactly what happened in this series.  Parker averaged 22.5 points per game.  He also dished out 6.2 assists per game.  Though his performance last night will not reflect his overall grade in this series, Parker is the motor that runs this team.  The elimination game he proved that even though he did not have the best shooting night, he was still ready to take the big shots as he did.  Parker hit two three pointers in the corner to boost the team in the final period.  He scored 13 points, this marked his lowest output since game four when he scored 17.  The game that really turned the corner for the Spurs, game five.  Why?  Parker had 25 points and was relentless.  He took advantage on what the Warriors were giving him.  Stephen Curry was still bothered by a bum ankle and was guarding Parker, he saw it and took advantage.  The supporting cast followed suit.

Final Grade: A
